Cuban Grilled Cheese Recipe

This is by no means an authentic Cuban sandwich but just a simple idea for a Cuban sandwich inspired grilled cheese. This recipe does not use sliced or pulled pork but uses sliced turkey instead. Ham, turkey, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles are piled onto sourdough bread and lightly grilled on both sides in the pan. For the dressing, you can use either mayonnaise or mustard or both. I like to pile massive amounts of ham, turkey and Swiss onto my sandwiches, but this actual recipe calls for less. These Cuban grilled cheese sandwiches are very easy to make. Enjoy.

  • 8 slices French bread
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 4 slices deli turkey
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 dill pickle slices
  • mustard (or mayonnaise)
  • 6 tablespoons butter


  1. Pre-heat a skillet over medium-high. Spread butter on one side of a slice of bread. Place bread butter side down onto the skillet. Top with 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham, 1 slice of turkey, 2 dill pickle slices, and 1 additional slice of cheese. Butter another slice of bread on one side and on the other side lightly spread a layer of mustard or mayonnaise. Place butter side up on top of the sandwich. Grill until lightly browned and flip over. Continue grilling until the other side has browned and the cheese has melted.
  2. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

    This looks great, however that looks like you used regular, sliced sandwich bread, not french bread. French bread is baked fresh daily and sold in a whole, un sliced loaf. French bread would make this sandwich more authentic, but it doesn’t look like it was used here.
