Cuban Sandwich…Sort Of

Cuban Sandwich

I love glazed ham. It’s an easy meal to make and there are always plenty of leftovers.  This Cuban Sandwich is one way to use up the leftovers. Though I cut a corner or two when making this sandwich (didn’t use Cuban bread), nonetheless, it still tastes great.


  • 2 “Hoagie” Rolls
  • 3 tbs Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs brown mustard
  • 4 slices of pickles (such as the Vlasic Kosher Dill Stackers)
  • Enough thin slices of ham to cover one side of the hoagie
  • 1/4 lbs of Swiss Cheese
  • Butter

Cuban Sandwich Ingredients


  1. Mix the mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl.
  2. Spread this mixture on the insides of the hoagie.
  3. Using the photo below as a guide, slice enough ham to cover one side of the hoagie.

  4. Place two slices of pickle on top.
  5. Then cover the other side with swiss cheese.
  6. Spread a light coating of butter on the outside of the hoagie.
  7. If you have a sandwich press, follow its instructions.
  8. If you do not have a sandwich press, you will need two pans. A very large one to grill the sandwiches in and another one to place on top of the sandwiches. Cast iron pans are ideal because of their weight.
  9. Place the sandwiches in the large pan, place a smaller one on top and press down to squish the sandwiches.
  10. Grill at a low heat for several minutes on each side. Essentially you want to grill/brown the bread a bit and you want the cheese to melt.
