Have you ever heard of a Cuban sandwich? If not, then you are in for a real treat! A Cuban sandwich is an iconic Latin American dish that has its roots in the cigar industry. It’s made with ham, cheese, pickles, and mustard on a toasted roll, and it’s absolutely delicious!
The Cuban sandwich is believed to have originated in Tampa or Key West, two communities of Cuban immigrants who had settled in Florida due to the cigar industry. Later on, Cuban exiles and expatriates brought it to Miami, where it gained popularity. Nowadays, you can find a version of this dish all over the United States and beyond.
Making a Cuban sandwich is easy and fun! All you need are some basic ingredients: sliced ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, yellow mustard, mayonnaise, and Cuban bread (or another type of crusty roll). To start, spread the mayonnaise on one side of the roll, then layer on the ham and cheese slices. Top this with the pickles and mustard before placing the other half of the roll on top. Place your sandwich in a pre-heated panini press or skillet and cook until golden brown.
