Almost Cuban Panini

I could honestly eat this sandwich everyday and be happy. I looooooove a good Cuban sandwich and even though this isn't a true Cuban, it is equally as good and guilt free!  It's a little lighter and a little quicker.  I look at it as a "souped-up" version of a ham and Swiss. : )  You can serve these with a whole serving of  Alexia Yukon fries and the whole meal is under 500 calories!

  • 1 Sub bun ( I used Kroger's bakery brand. You could also use french bread)
  • 2 oz Oscar Meyer Carving Board Turkey breast (warmed up)
  • 1-2 slices of ham ( I use Private Selection Rosemary ham)
  • 2 slices of fat free Swiss singles
  • 3 slices of sandwich stuffer pickles
  • Dijon mustard
  • Red fat mayo with olive oil
  • Pam cooking spray-butter flavor


Slice the bun open and spread mustard on one side and mayo on the other. Place cheese and pickles on the bread. Add turkey and top with ham. Close your sandwich, spray a Panini grill  (you could also make this in a grill pan and place a heavy object on top of the sandwich to help smash it down) with buttered flavored Pam and press down until the cheese is melted and the crust is a little crispy. Cut and enjoy!
