Cuban Sliders

There is nothing quite so tasty as a Cuban sandwich.  These sliders are no exception.  They are small bites packed with flavor.    Ham, roasted pork, Swiss Cheese, chopped pickles, all sandwiched between a Hawaiian sweet roll (I used The Original King's Hawaiian Rolls) that has been spread with mustard.

Sounds delicious and they are so easy to make.  Once the sliders have been constructed,  place them  in a preheated 400 degree F oven with a cast iron skillet on top of the sandwiches.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven, cut and serve.

Great for parties, snacking, light meals, Tree trimming days, just good anytime:)

Cuban Sliders
From "Southern Living Magazine"

1/4 cup olive oil
1 (12-oz.) package Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls
4 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
4 ounces thinly sliced deli-roasted pork
6 (1-oz.) Swiss cheese slices
1/2 cup chopped dill pickle chips
3 tablespoons yellow mustard

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spread olive oil in a jelly-roll pan; place pan in oven to heat.
2. Remove rolls from package. (Do not separate rolls.) Cut rolls in half horizontally, creating 1 top and 1 bottom. Layer ham, pork, and Swiss cheese on bottom half. Spread chopped pickles over cheese. Spread mustard on cut side of top half of rolls, and place, cut side down, on bottom half to make a large sandwich.
3. Remove jelly-roll pan from oven, and carefully transfer sandwich to hot pan. Place a cast-iron skillet or griddle directly on rolls.
4. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts and bread is crisp. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes. Cut into 12 sliders, and serve immediately.


  1. sounds like a great recipe. I will have to see if I can get Hawaiian rolls.

  2. I am getting really HUNGRY. The sandwich looks scrumptious, Geraldine.

  3. SO easy and tasty! And I love that these aren't the ordinary type sandwiches, too :) Have a terrific Thanksgiving, Geri!
