Little Cubano Toasties

on ACE Organic White

Little toasty, cheesy Cubanos are perfect party fare with a frosty beer or a refreshing mojito.

Serves: 4 to 6


  • 8 slices ACE Bakery® Organic White Sliced Loaf
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds, crushed
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 tbsp. honey mustard
  • 12 oz pork tenderloin
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices smoked ham
  • 8 dill pickle slices
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the seasonings. Brush 1 tbsp.  of the honey mustard all over the pork tenderloin and sprinkle with the seasoning mixture to cover.
  3. Place the pork on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roast for 35-40 minutes until just a blush of pink remains or an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) is reached. Rest pork for 5 minutes before slicing into thin slices.
  4. Spread 4 slices of ACE Bakery® Organic White Bread with remaining 2 tbsp. of honey mustard. Layer each with 1 slice of cheese, 4 slices of roasted pork, a slice of ham, 2 slices of dill pickle and the remaining slice of cheese, and then top with another slice of bread.
  5. Melt the butter with the minced garlic until just barely sizzling. Lightly brush the sandwiches with the flavoured butter.
  6. Cook two at a time, in a Panini press for 3 minutes (or 2 minutes per side in a large non-stick skillet) until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden and crisp.
  7. Rest each sandwich for 1 minute before slicing off the crusts and cutting each into four small squares.
