The day after Thanksgiving, I was looking for a few new recipes to make with leftover turkey, and I accidentally stumbled on a recipe for Cuban sandwiches. I love Cuban sandwiches. Love.
I decided to make some sandwiches for dinner for the family. Other than the fact that not everyone in the house is a fan of pickles, they were a huge hit. We had plenty of leftover sauce after our dinner, so I’ll be making these again soon for lunch. I love panini-style sandwich recipes like this because each sandwich can be made to the preference of each family member. That way everyone is happy!
Since cooking, eating, and working is pretty much all I’ve done this week, I decided to share a simple recipe for Photostory Friday this week.
Cuban Medianoche (Midnight) Sandwich
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons Italian dressing
- 4 tablespoons yellow mustard
- Italian bread, sliced (or another thick, white bread)
- Thinly sliced turkey meat
- Thinly sliced cooked ham
- Thinly sliced Swiss cheese
- Dill pickle "sandwich" slices
- ½ cup olive oil
- Mix mayonnaise and Italian dressing together in a small bowl. Spread mayo mixture and mustard on bread.
- Layer turkey, ham, and cheese on each sandwich. Top with dill pickle slices.
- Close sandwiches, and brush both sides with olive oil.
- Heat in a panini press or on a skillet, pressing down with a heavy plate. If cooking on a skillet, be sure to flip sandwich to cook on both sides. You can also toast them in the oven on broil. Cook until bread is lightly toasted and cheese is melted.
