Cuban Sandwich

Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes • Serves: 4

1 package (12 to 16 ounces) refrigerated sauceless fully cooked pulled pork
4 Schnucks Bakery deli buns
2 tablespoons Schnucks spicy brown mustard
4 slices Black Forest ham (about 4 ounces)
8 slices Schnucks sliced Swiss cheese
8 slices Schnucks kosher dill sandwich slices
1 tablespoon Schnucks unsalted butter

1. Prepare pork with microwave-oven method as label directs; do not use BBQ sauce packet if included. When cool enough to handle, shred pork as label directs.

2. Open buns to almost lie flat. Spread 1/2 tablespoon mustard on cut sides of each bun. Over each bun, place 1 slice ham flat to cover mustard; top each with one-fourth pork, 2 slices cheese and 2 dill sandwich slices. Fold buns to enclose fillings.

3. Meanwhile, preheat panini press as manufacturer directs. Place butter in panini press; as butter melts, brush with silicone brush to coat press. Place 2 sandwiches in press; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese melts and buns are lightly browned. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches. Slice each sandwich diagonally to serve.

Cook’s Wisdom

To make a panini without a panini press: Preheat grill pan over medium heat. Omit butter; spray outsides of prepared sandwiches with nonstick cooking spray. Cook sandwiches 6 to 8 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese melts, pressing down occasionally with large spatula and turning once halfway through cooking.
