This is one of those sandwiches that I wish I would have been introduced to me when I was younger. It took 28 years of my life before someone introduced to me to these delicious pieces of bread and meat and cheese. If you've never had one you owe it to yourself to have one. I bet you looking at the ingredients and thinking that they don't really sound that good. Trust me they are insanely good. So give this a shot and let me know what you think. If you have any questions please let me know.
* You can use whatever kind of pork you'd like. It simply needs to be something cooked through and delicious. I used some left over pork chops I had.
* Traditionally these are made with baguettes but I like this method better. I used como bread.
* If you have a panini press use it.
* Makes 4 sandwiches.
- 8 slices of crust bread
- 2 tablespoons or so of yellow mustard
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 1/2 pound thinly sliced ham (I used black forest because it's awesome)
- 1/2 pound thinly sliced roasted pork
- 3 dill pickles sliced thin
- 1 stick of butter melted
1. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
2. Let's make some sandwiches. On all the pieces of bread cover it with the mustard, then the cheese. Then place the pork, ham and pickles on half of the pieces of bread then cover them with the other halves.
3. Put some butter into the center of the pan then add 2 sandwiches on top of it then cover with a sheet pan. When 3 minutes are up rotate the sandwiches 180 degrees to get an even toast. Wait 3 more minutes then cover the top with butter then flip. Do the same thing for this side until you get the desired toastiness.
4. Remove from the pan, cut in half and enjoy. I like mine with a light salad or fries or something else delicious.
