Sandwiches, not cigars.  They're a great way to use up leftover pork roast, which is one leftover that tends to hang around drying out in our fridge.  It's much easier to get thin sandwiches slices if you slice the roast after it's chilled. 

You can put the sandwiches together ahead of time, as long as you put the pickles in between layers of meat and cheese rather than against the bread.  Then you can grill them when you're ready.  We use the George Foreman for this purpose, but a griddle and a brick (or an actual panini press) will get the job done, too.

Cuban Sandwiches
Makes 4

4 bolillo or hoagie rolls
4 slices deli ham
4 slices leftover roast pork
4 slices provolone cheese
8 pickle slices (long sandwich-style slices)
4 tbsp mustard

Spread each roll with 1 tbsp mustard.  Layer the meats and cheese with 2 pickle slices on the inside. 

Grill about 8 minutes in a press-style cooker, or 4 minutes on each side over medium heat on a griddle.
