    To caramelize onions, heat remaining olive oil in frying pan and cook chopped onions on low heat, usually at least 30 minutes. Don’t stir too often. Once caramelized, remove and set aside.

    Spread butter on the outside of the Cuban bread before topping on assembled sandwich and cooking in a Panini press. Once outside is crisp, turn over and cook on the other side.

More About This Recipe

  • The quintessential Cuban on-the-go lunch, I grew up enjoying this hearty sandwich. While my American counterparts lunched on PB&J, I was the envy of the schoolyard with my layers of smoked ham and roasted lechón. To update the traditional Cuban sandwich, I love to add other complex flavors. Here, roasted garlic-infused mustard and sweet caramelized onions make this Cuban sandwich anything but ordinary.
