1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan

1 12-inch Cuban baguette or soft hoagie roll

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

2 1/2 slices ham (about 3 ounces)

2 slices roast or pressed pork (2 to 3 ounces)

2 1/2 slices swiss cheese (about 2 ounces)

3 dill pickle slices


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter.
  2. Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Spread 1 tablespoon butter evenly on one half of the bread and the mustard on the other. Layer the ham, roast pork, cheese and pickles on the bottom half; close with the top.
  3. Place the sandwich in the skillet and press down with your hands, a spatula or another skillet; cook for about 30 seconds, flip and cook on the other side until golden and the cheese is melted. Slice in half.
