Classic Cuban Midnight (Medianoche) Sandwich

Classic Cuban Midnight (Medianoche) Sandwich

INGREDIENTS:

4 sweet bread rolls
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1 pound thinly sliced cooked ham
1 pound thinly sliced fully cooked pork
1 pound sliced Swiss cheese
1 cup dill pickle slices
2 tablespoons butter, melted

DIRECTIONS:

Split the sandwich rolls in half, and spread mustard and mayonnaise
liberally
onto the cut sides. On each sandwich, place and equal amount of Swiss
cheese,
ham and pork in exactly that order. Place a few pickles onto each one,
and
put the top of the roll onto the sandwich. Brush the tops with melted
butter.

Press each sandwich in a sandwich press heated to medium-high heat. If
a
sandwich press is not available, use a large skillet over medium-high
heat, and
press the sandwiches down using a sturdy plate or skillet. Some indoor
grills
may be good for this also. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes, keeping sandwiches
pressed.
If using a skillet, you may want to flip them once for even browning.
Slice
diagonally and serve hot.
