Info
Another sandwich recipe from my new Panini cookbook is the classic Cuban. Slices of ham, pork & provolone cheese with mustard & pickle slices on a Portuguese sweet roll was the starting point. This recipe added some freshly chopped cilantro to the mix. After a quick 10 minute toast on the gas grill and it is time to eat. I’ll mention it was only 30 degrees when I did this, but the only adjustments needed was a longer warm up time. The recipe had suggested the Portuguese sweet roll as a substitute if you couldn’t find a Cuban roll and it was an interesting switch as was the addition of cilantro. I plan to make this again using a Cuban roll when I locate a source.
