Cuban Sandwiches

One of my favorite things to do with leftover pork roast (see previous recipe) is to make Cuban sandwiches. This may not be "traditional" but it works for my family and their taste preferences, along with what I can find handy in the grocery store.

Leftover pork roast, roughly chopped
deli ham
pickle slices
swiss cheese
baguette bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Quantities of the ingredients will depend on how many people you are feeding. I would gauge about 1 cup pork, 2 slices ham and 2 slices cheese per 1/2 baguette (per person).

Slice the bread down the center, spread mustard on one side and mayo on the other. Line the cheese on one side and the ham on the other. Mound the chopped pork up the center and center the pickles on top. Close the sandwich and press together firmly.

Sprinkle the bread with oil, butter (or non-stick EVOO spray) and a little salt. Place in the over for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Slice and enjoy!
