Info
I love Cubano paninis and this quesadilla is a similar but different version of this old favorite. The recipe came from a Good Housekeeping Magazine supplement called Grilling for Every Day. It was simple to make with Swiss cheese, sliced roast pork, Black Forrest Ham, & pickle slices served on 6” tortillas coated with Dijon mustard. It was a quick prep & a quick grill at 3 minutes per side. The book says these are appetizers, but the reality is they are good enough to serve as the main course which is what I did.
