Serves: 4
  • 1 loaf Cuban bread
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese, about ½ pound
  • 16 slices maple glazed honey ham, about 1 pound
  • 16 slices hot capicola, about 1 pound
  • 8 - 12 slices dill pickle planks
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  1. If you are using a panini press, preheat to medium-high. (If do not have a press, you can use a sauté pan).
  2. Slice the loaf of bread into 4 equal pieces and then each piece lengthwise. Spread the butter on the outside of each half and then spread the mustard on the inside of each half.
  3. Cover the inside of each half with swiss cheese.
  4. On one half of each sandwich, layer 4 slices of maple glazed honey ham and 4 slices of capicola.
  5. Place 2 -3 pickle planks on top of the ham and then close the sandwich.
  6. Place the sandwich in the panini press and place something heavy and heat proof, on top of the press (I use a sack of flour, but several cans of veggies will work too). Cook until the cheese is melted and the outside is crispy, about 5 minutes. If you are using a sauté pan, heat over medium-high heat. Transfer the sandwich to the pan and then place a flat-bottomed dish like a baking dish or smaller pot on top weighted with something heavy, like a sack of flour or canned food. Cook 2- 3 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer the sandwich to a cutting board and slice in half. Serve and enjoy!
