Sandwich Cubano

>
Many  years ago, in the seventies and early eighties, whenever I was spending time in Florida, partying about town nightly in Fort Lauderdale (home port for RVL)  and Miami (home port for RCCL), the “Cubano” was a welcome midnight snack, when, many a night, its substantial mass and rustic deliciousness saved me and my friends from drowning in too many “Cuba Libres” and “Cervezas” 😦 🙂
The “Cubano” and its close cousin, the “Media Noche“, were omnipresent from morning until the wee-hours in small restaurants, food trucks and “Cantinas”, whereas nowadays it has been widely and sadly replaced by burgers and hot dogs and you can only find good “Cubanos” in local chains like “La Carreta” and a few remaining traditional Cuban restaurants and neighborhood dives.
Here now my tribute to this wonderful, simple, original sandwich.
“The Sandwich Cubano” – old-fashioned comfort food at its finest !

P.S.
If you don’t have a sandwich press, griddle or cast iron pan, wrap two bricks in alu-foil, preheat in oven at 500F, place sandwich between the bricks and bake in oven until golden and crisp, about 15 min.
