Have you ever seen the show Restaurant Impossible?
I love that show.
-Watching them come in and turn a struggling restaurant around ultimately changing people’s lives.
I adore the design makeover aspect and of course, the food makeovers always perk my attention.
And it had been forever since I have had one. (Probably at the Miami airport!)
So… I created this much better for you version of a Cuban sandwich that I have named El Cubano because I jump on any chance I get to throw Spanish in the mix! (I then made it again for breakfast a few days later. )
I hope you like it as much as I did!
Here’s What You Need:
1 whole wheat kaiser roll
Shaved deli ham (all natural, nitrate free!)
1 piece of low-fat swiss
4 butter pickles (organic, please!)
organic non-stick or grape seed oil spray
Handful of baby spinach
Here’s What You Do:
Preheat or panini maker or grill pan. Spread one side of the bread generously with the Dijon mustard. Add the spinach, ham, cheese, and about 4 pickles and then top with the second piece of bread. Spray the top with organic non-stick or grapeseed oil. Put in the panini maker for about 5 minutes. Or spray a the grill pan and cook the sandwich like a grilled cheese using a heavier pan on the top of the sandwich to create the grill marks. Disfruta! Enjoy!
You can change this to a ham and cheddar with spinach or leave it as is and make the pickles a really fun addition!
