I've always heard my grandma talking about the insanely delicious Cuban sandwich her mother used to make for her. So after long searching I finally found my great-grandmother's recipe. When making them, I wasn't all that excited about combining pork, ham and turkey in one sandwich. Especially with Swiss cheese! But was my grandma right. The combination of those three meats with Swiss cheese and pickles is sandwich perfection!
For the most authentic taste, don’t use standard processed cold cuts when making this sandwich. If you do use cold cuts, make sure they are sliced thick.
This sandwich is made using Cuban bread. If you can’t find it, substitute a crusty loaf bread such as French or Italian. It is also usually pressed in a sandwich iron. If you don’t have one, you can use a skillet as described.
