pressed cuban sandwiches with garlic dijon butter

have i ever mentioned how much i love sandwiches? i consider sandwich making one of my (few) talents. unfortunately, being a poor (and lazy) college student, i am usually forced to stick to the simple, yet delicious, pb&j. so when rita and i decided on a cuba/florida theme for our dad's b-day dinner over winter break, cuban sandwiches were a given.
the recipe, from cooking light, is super simple and delicious. we didn't really pay attention to the exact quantities of this recipe, except for making the garlic-dijon spread. we used 2 slices of french bread (instead of rolls), one slice of each meat, and 2 or 3 slices of cheese (the recipe calls for low fat, but rita, being a diehard fan of cheese, doesn't believe in low or nonfat cheese. unless it is feta, which is acceptable) per sandwich. enjoy!

ANY sandwich is better pressed! I don't have a panini maker so I just put a cast iron skillet on top of the sandwiches. Your Cuban looks good!
