There was a calling, a great void to be filled, a dark void that needed to be filled. And that hole was the endless pit of the stomachs that belonged to the guys at the football game. That’s right, this story is really just about food. Tailgating food. First, it has to be good. Then it has to be portable, easy to prepare, eaten with two possibly mitten covered hands, and stacked high with all the right flavor. This Grilled Cuban Sandwich covers all those bases, and is spiked with a little extra zing from El Diablo’s Mango Mustard. It’s the mustard that bites back. Mixed with mayo and smeared all over fresh ciabatta bread, filling in those air pockets with ease, it made for the perfect addition to this on the go nibbler. Forget slices of pizza that leave you craving more.
Get ready to warm up with a Cuban that bites back.

- 2 tbs mayo

- 8 oz ham, sliced

- Dill pickle slices
- 4 to 6 oz Swiss cheese, sliced
- Preheat your grill to medium.
- Spray a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray.
- Whisk mustard and mayo in a bowl together. season with salt and pepper.
- Spread mustard mixture over the inside of the ciabatta loaf. Layer the sliced pork, ham, and salami on the bottom of the loaf. Arrange pickles over top and top with cheese. Press the top of the ciabatta loaf on and wrap tightly in prepped aluminum foil.
- Reduce the heat to low on that grill and toss the sandwich on, pressing down on the loaf (use a brick if desired). Cook for about 30 minutes, flipping every 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and meats are heated through.
