I saw a recipe for a Cuban sandwich the other day and it looked
so good! I thought I’ve just got to make one of those,
so one day while home on lunch I threw
this together. It was quite tasty and I will be
making this again soon.
As usual, there is a twist. My mom always laughed at me ’cause if
I don’t have it, I’ll substitute something for it! 🙂
This sandwich is made using my low carb biscuit for the bread
and unfortunately I had no pork roast, so maybe I should
just call this a Hot Ham Sandwich?!
I really didn’t use a recipe (but I will give you a link at the end)
and used more of a process, so I will overwhelm you
with pics and how I did made it.
I thought the sandwich photographed nicely and I couldn’t
chose just one picture to share, so that’s why I’ve posted
several different angles here.
I made up my biscuit dough and actually fried it up like a pancake.
It made 2 good size pancakes or fried bread.
I sliced one of the “pancakes” into and flipped it over and spread
mayo on both “crusts” of the bread. I then layered
sliced ham, cheese, and pickles, sprinkled with sea salt and
smokehouse pepper and assembled the sandwich. I proceeded to
spread with butter and toast on both sides since I don’t own
a sandwich press. Yummo!
It was great as a quick lunch. Also, this sandwich would make a
great party appetizer when cut into smaller pieces
or served along with soup would be dinner!
