Florida restaurants introduced the simple, delicious flavors of this Cuban favorite to the United States. If you don't have leftover roast pork, just pick up some from the deli.

Ingredients

4
white hamburger buns, split
2
teaspoons yellow mustard
4
teaspoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
4
ounces thinly sliced cooked roast pork
4
ounces thinly sliced cooked ham
4
ounces sliced Swiss cheese
12
slices dill pickles
3
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Steps

  • 1 For each sandwich, spread one cut side of each bun with 1/2 teaspoon mustard and the other side with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise. Layer pork, ham, cheese and 3 pickle slices in each bun, folding meats or cheese to fit if necessary. Press sandwiches firmly with palm of hand to flatten to about 1-inch thickness.
  • 2 Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush tops of sandwiches with melted butter. Place sandwiches, buttered sides down, in skillet. Brush bottoms with remaining butter. Cook about 6 minutes, turning once, until crisp and brown on both sides.
