Cuban sandwiches

Cuban sandwiches made with today's pan Cubano turned out great. Awesome, the boys pronounced them. Chef can't hope for much more than that!

I thought the fairly expensive provolone I bought today had a problematic bitterness, which did not go undetected in the sandwiches. A milder provolone or swiss would have been better.

Other than that, they were quite good. The bread performed exactly as I'd hoped, browning superbly and compacting well, without being too hard or gummy. I'd make it again for these or other sandwiches, pressed or not.
