Cuban Sandwich


Place in sandwich you do not have one:

1 Preheat the oven to 350 F. Trim the ends off the loaf and slice the bread in half lengthwise. Spread both cut surfaces with mayonnaise, layer one half with pickle slices, cheese, pork, and ham, cover with the second slice of bread, and cut down the middle into two sandwiches.
2 Place the sandwiches on a lightly oiled baking sheet and brush the tops with butter. Place a heavy cast-iron skillet over both sandwiches to weigh them down, and bake until crisp and hot, about 20 minutes.
