Medianoche (Midnight Sandwich)


Medianoche (midnight Sandwich)


1/3 cut Cuban sweet and yellow (egg) bread

4 slices of ham

4 slices roast pork

4 slices Swiss cheese

3 pickles

Mustard to taste


Slice the bread across the middle, and spread mustard on the two open halves. Layer by adding the pork, then the ham, and finally cheese. Garnish with pickles on top. Close and bring halves together. Brush a little butter on the outside of bread (both sides).

Use a sandwich press of flat plates (not grill) and place sandwich. Press and let cook until cheese melts. You may also place the sandwich on a skillet and fry each side, pressing top side, each time, with a heavy kitchen utensil or object.

Once done, cut sandwich diagonally, through the middle, making two triangle-like pieces.
