Cuban American Panini


  • 4 rolls
  • 2 tbsp. yellow mustard, divided
  • 8 slices roast pork, thinly sliced, divided
  • 16 slices deli ham, thinly sliced, divided
  • 4 dill pickles, thinly sliced, divided
  • 4 slices American cheese, thinly sliced, divided
  • 4 tbsp. butter, softened, divided

Slice the rolls in half. Spread one side of each roll with the mustard. Divide the pork, ham, pickles and cheese evenly among the four rolls. Top the sandwich with the other half of the roll.

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Spread the softened butter on one side of each roll. Place the sandwich, butter side down, in the pan. Press down firmly with a spatula to flatten the sandwiches. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned. Spread the remaining butter on the top side of the sandwiches and flip to cook the second side. Continue pressing down firmly with a spatula. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until browned. Alternately, you can butter each side of each sandwich and put it in a panini press to cook. Serve immediately.
