This is far from a Traditional Cuban Sandwich. But it's my recipe and we love them.
Hamburgers , Cooked on the grill
Onion sliced very thin
Pickle, Drained Good I like the stackers and about 4 per Sandwich
American an Mozzarella Slices
French or Italian Bread sliced in pieces big enough to cover the burger.
Bricks or a 16 inch walk block 1 inch thick. No I haven't lost it yet.
Now that you have the bread sliced, butter the top and bottom on the outside and here is the best way to build them from the bottom. Bread, cheese, pickle, cheese, onion. burger, two slices of ham, squirt of mustard, dash of Mayo, Slice of cheese, and top. Now here is the good part. Wrap the sandwiches in tin foil and set them back on the hot grill , Now set a brick on each one of them to weigh them down, or set 4 on and set the walk block on them. 2 minutes on either side. Pull the block or bricks off , flip them over and put the weight back on for 2 minutes. Take them off , peel off the foil and MAN!! These are fabulous. Serve with fries, slaw , potato salad or any other festive side dish you like.
A traditional Cuban Sandwich contains a nice slice of Roasted Pork instead of a Hamburger. Try them with pork, YUMMY !!!
