Now, I have no idea why these have that name or if they even make them in Cuba, but that is what my neighbor who made them called them. I love pressed sandwiches and we had these one night for dinner in the heat wave.
The real recipe does not call for tomatoes but my husband and I wanted them on there and boy what a taste. So good!!
Sliced sour dough bread
Better the bread first on the outside and assemble the sandwiches while your pan is heating up. You could just make these grilled but if you want them pressed and don't have a panini maker like me, then you can use two pans. You are supposed to fill a tea kettle to set on the top pan for pressing but I don't have one right now so I filled a pan with some water which was a little wonky but worked. Just toast on one side and then flip for a couple more minutes
