  • Mix yellow and Dijon mustards together and spread evenly over baguette slices. Top 1/2 of the bread slices with 1/2 of the Swiss cheese and place on the rack on the baking sheet. Top each with pickle slices, ham, pork loin, and remaining cheese. Top sandwiches with remaining baguette slices.

  • Spread mayonnaise over the tops of the sandwiches and sprinkle with garlic powder. Spray the bottom of a second baking pan with cooking spray and place upside-down on top of the sandwiches. Weigh down the top pan with a heavy, oven-safe item such as a cast iron skillet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove top pan and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes more.

Real Cuban sandwiches DO NOT include mayo Dijon mustard or garlic powder. Lightly rub some butter on top of the bread while heating. Otherwise ingredients are correct. A good ham to use would be Boar's Head Sweet Slice (available at Publix). Pork should not have too much seasoning. NO LETTUCE TOMATO ONIONS etc. Instead of cutting the bread into slices and making individual little sandwiches Slice the baguette down the middle as for a regular sandwich. Assemble all the ingredients on the bottom slice yellow mustard goes on the inside of the top slice. Cover the ingredients with the top of the baguette and put the whole thing on a sandwich press or weigh down as in the original recipe. When done cut the sandwich into half inch slices. That way you still end up with individual slices nicer presentation and everyone gets a bit of the crusty top. A Real Cuban Read More
