PLs Cuban Sandwich

As promised, today I am going to feature my version of the cuban sandwich.  Remember to make extras of the Simple Pork Chops because you'll want to have enough to try this out--you may even convince your mind that you are somewhere on South Beach or sitting in Havana!


Equipment:
Toaster Oven
Sharp knife

Ingredients:
Leftover or Freshly-made Pork chops, sliced in half


Thin Sliced Ham
Gouda, Havarti, or Munster type cheese
Italian baguette (this is a lighter baguette, less chewy and less dense than a French baguette)
Mayonnaise
Mustard (I use Gulden's Brown)
Kosher Dill Pickles


Instructions:
1. Wash Your Hands.
2. Slice your baguette into thirds, cut in half and toast lightly.


(Buy an extra baguette and freeze it pre-sliced for future garlic bread or other sandwiches)


3. Carefully slice the pork chops in half, approx 1/8" in width.


4. Begin your assembly:
--Mayo and mustard, both sides


--pickles, one side



--ham, one side


--pork slices on top of ham


5. Briefly toast again until cheese is softened.


6. Combine both sides of the sandwich.
7. Dig in! Crunchy, warm, and so satisfying!
