Cuban Sandwiches!

Roast pork leftovers means Cuban sandwiches! Roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles. Except that we don't like pickles on sandwiches so I put a little smear of tartar sauce on one side of the bread to give that pickle-y feeling. It worked! The bread I had was a softer, not too crusty, Italian sesame loaf, and I needed to find a way to make it crunchy in the end product. So, I brushed each outside with olive oil and put the sandwiches on a griddle pan, weighted by a cast iron skillet. It worked perfectly! In fact, the roof of my mouth is a little sore from the crispy, crunchy bread.
