Have you ever had the pleasure of eating a Cuban Sandwich? It is the Latin variation of ham and cheese that is believed to have been first served in restaurants in Cuba in the 1930’s.
The sandwiches were very popular with the workers in the Cuban sugar mills and later when the workers immigrated to South Florida to work in the cigar factories; it became daily cafeteria fare there. The traditional flattened and toasted Cuban sandwich was made using a special press called a plancha.
Use a Panini press or preheat a griddle or skillet on medium heat.
