Cuban bread is thinner than a traditional bread loaf, resulting in a slightly crunchy sandwich. If you don't have access to Cuban bread, then French or Italian bread, or even a hoagie roll, will do. After that, use a bread knife to cut both ends off the loaf of bread. The remaining loaf, which will be used to make the Cuban sandwich, can be any size you like. Most people prefer their sandwiches about 7 inches long. The next step is to stand the bread on end and slice the loaf in half. After that lay the sliced bread in front of you with the insides facing up. Spread about 2 tbs. of regular mustard evenly over the cut side of the bread top. Went you have all that done you place 8 to 10 thin dill pickle slices-about 2 large; sliced dill pickles-on top of the mustard. Place 2 slices of Swiss cheese on top of the sliced pickles too. Next…
