Lower Calorie Cuban Sandwich

A quick and easy, but most importantly, delicious sandwich – Cuban sandwiches are usually made with roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, thin sliced pickles and mustard, then pressed with a sandwich press or a Panini grill until everything is hot and the cheese is melted. Turkey breast makes a great, lighter alternative to roast pork and if you use French bread it is soft and perfect for a Cuban sandwich.
