Because this Cuban pressed sandwich is not served hot, it can be transported to work or your next picnic. If you happen to be near a toaster oven or panini press, the sandwich is even better when toasty and warm (about 5 minutes at medium-high heat), but it’s just as great at room temperature.

- 1 small French roll
- 1 tablespoon hot mustard
- 1/4 cup finely chopped pickle
- 2 ounces sliced honey-roasted ham
- 2 ounces sliced roast turkey
- 2 slices Swiss cheese
1Slice French roll in half horizontally. Mix together hot mustard and pickle and spread on both cut sides of roll.
2Layer ham, turkey, and cheese in roll. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then lightly press sandwich closed. Wrap in parchment paper or waxed paper.
Beverage pairing: Brooklyn Lager, New York. Mustard, pickles, turkey, ham: That’s a call for beer, not wine. A good, simple, classic beer. A lager with character, served cold and icy, is all you need.
