Cuban Sandwich Recipe
I made one of these Cuban Sandwiches for Madeliene’s husband, Spencer, a few weeks ago and he was speech-less! Mainly because his mouth was too busy enjoying the Cuban to chat much about anything. He’s a lover of good food and this sandwich hit his “Top 5” sandwiches list! That’s quite an honor because he doesn’t mess around when it comes to his sandwiches! The Blueberry Apple Coleslaw Recipe you see is in the background of the photo’s is simple to make and quite a marvelous match as a side dish for a Cuban Sandwich! Then add some crinkle potato chips with a shot of bourbon and we are right back in 1831 when the cuban sandwich was created.
A glance at the history of the Cuban Sandwich
A Cuban sandwich is a variation of a ham and cheese sandwich that originated among the Cuban workers in the cigar factories in Key West, Florida as early as 1831. Later in 1886, Cuban exiles and expatriates brought it to Ybor City, Tampa. The sandwich was later popularized in Miami in the 1940s. Some believe that the sandwich was a common lunch food for workers in both the cigar factories and sugar mills of Cuba (especially in big cities such as Havana or Santiago de Cuba) and the cigar factories of Key West by the 1860s.
