Roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese and dill pickles are thinly sliced and are kept in layers when they are cold. Pork is slowly roasted along with Cuban spices thereby giving the pork a unique citrus and garlic flavor.

A sandwich press 'plancha' is used to grill the sandwich until the bread is crunchy and the cheese melts. Cuban sandwich does not contain mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato. These sandwiches are Miami's favorite snack and can be best enjoyed at snack bars in the street corners called 'loncherias'. Tampa is another place that boasts of the best Cuban sandwiches.

The bread is buttered and the fillings generally used are light such as mayonnaise, cream cheese, fresh vegetables like cucumber, asparagus and radish. Fillings such as smoked salmon, egg salad, curried chicken, fruit jam also may be used.

The crust of the bread is cut off before serving. The sandwiches should be prepared in such a way so that they can be held and eaten with ease. White bread can also be supplemented with wheat bread, rye bread or pumpernickel. In general the sandwich should be small enough to be eaten in two mouthfuls. The sandwich can be cut into any shape and length.


Cucumber sandwich

Two thin slices of bread are cut in triangular shape and thin slices of cucumber are placed in between the buttered slices of bread. The bread is sliced very thin and buttered from end to end to hold the cucumber at its place; the cucumber is dried on a paper towel before placing it on the bread so as to remove excessive sogginess.

Cucumber has excellent coolant properties and is used widely in sandwiches in India during summer along with a dash of mint chutney. Cucumber sandwiches are popular in America too; benedictine (a green soft spread) cucumber sandwiches are served at many a summer gathering. Chopped dill or spices, cream cheese and salmon are other famous variations of the cucumber sandwich in the U S.


Panini sandwich

Panino is an Italian word and the plural is panini, which means small piece of bread. Panini is prepared by cutting a small loaf of bread straight across and stuffing it with ham, meat, and salami and cheese. Panini sandwich is grilled in a device also called the panini. In Italy, the most famous type of panini is stuffed with slices of roasted pork meat. Making use of the panini grill helps compress the sandwich uniformly without cutting off the stuffing.

Ciabatta rolls, foccacia or baguette are the best choice of bread to be used for making panini sandwich. The stuffing can range from vegetables to any meat of one's choice. Once the sandwich has been stuffed, smear oil on the exteriors and place it in the panini grill and remove when cooked. You can further cook the sandwich for a few more minutes if you want it hot and toasted.

Finger sandwich is made with white bread and the fillings are either vegetables, chicken, pimento cheese paste, egg salad, paste of vegetables or any meat. After the sandwich is stuffed, it is cut into thin long pieces or small triangles or circles.


Egg salad sandwich

Both the egg and yellow are used in combination or alone. Generally egg salad is served on toast so that the bread does not get soggy.
