More About This Recipe

  • My grandparents, my parents and many other relatives have always traveled to Florida seasonally to escape Michigan winters. Many times, for school breaks, I traveled with them. As a little girl, I experienced southern BBQ and country hams as well as southern sweet yeast dinner rolls and the eggy sweet Cuban yeast bread called “medianoche.” Over the years, Floridian cuisine has become increasingly influenced by Cuban cuisine. As an adult, I’ve enjoyed traveling to Miami, the Florida Keys and the Everglades. I have not been to Cuba yet, but just by eating at increasingly popular Cuban food venues in Florida, I have developed a love for Cuban food—I especially love the Cuban layered sandwiches. I love how the cheese glues everything together and the salty crunch of the dill pickle. I am so happy Pillsbury™ introduced Sweet Hawaiian refrigerated crescent rolls! The sweetness of this dough helps to mimic the traditional Cuban bread flavor in this recipe I have developed and is wonderful contrast to the saltiness of the dill, ham and cheese. A can of this dough is what I use to hold my favorite Cuban sandwich ingredients together. I enjoy serving this dinner ring alongside a variety of fresh tropical fruits to my Michigan family and friends so they can experience the popular Florida tastes I enjoyed as a child.
