Pressed Cuban Sandwiches

4 teaspoons honey butter
2 (10-ounce) Deli Cuban sandwiches


1. Preheat 2-sided tabletop grill. Place honey butter in small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high 30 seconds or until butter melts.
2. Gently compress sandwiches to flatten and then brush both sides with butter. Place on grill, close lid, and press down gently. Grill 3 minutes, occasionally pressing lid down.
3. Flip sandwiches over. (This will result in a crusty finish on both sides.) Close lid and press down gently. Grill 3 more minutes, occasionally pressing down, or until golden and thoroughly heated. Cut into 4 servings. Serve.

Aprons Advice

No grill? Use a large skillet to heat sandwich over medium heat. Melt butter; swirl to coat. Add sandwich, cover with smaller skillet or heat-proof plate; press down firmly for 1–2 minutes on each side.
