I believe this sandwich could be a turning point in my life, marking the start of an exciting new relationship with mustard and pickles. I have never been a huge fan of mustard, and hesitated to put a bunch on this sandwich, but I did it anyways, and am sure glad I did! The mix of mustard and pickle, with the Swiss cheese, and all the hearty meat was so great!
I know this recipe isn’t much different than an actual Cuban sandwich, so to rocket it into grilled cheese territory I loaded it up with Swiss cheese! Cheese on the bottom, cheese in the middle and cheese on top! Gluing all those wonderful ingredients together into a beautiful, beeautiful sandwich! Praise Cuba!!
