If you get the urge to cook up a Cuban-themed feast, I say Cuban sandwiches must make the cut.
They’re so easy to make, and who doesn’t love a pressed sandwich oozing with cheese?
Pickles and yellow mustard cut the cheese perfectly, and then there’s my other favorite part of the sandwich: the Cuban bread. Crisp on the outside and pillow-soft on the inside, it looks sort of like a French baguette only wider and flatter. Slather the griddle or panini press with butter before you throw the sandwich on if you really want to go for it – it’s not totally necessary, but who are we kidding… We are eating a giant loaf of carb-laden white bread already, aren’t we?
