Cubano Sandwich Stuffing

Cubano Sandwich Stuffing

One of my favorite recipes I have ever made is Big Mac Stuffing, but since then, I haven’t turned any other sandwiches into stuffing! I decided to fix that this year by mashing up a cubano with stuffing. Roasted pork, ham, pickles, and mustard, all mixed together with bread in a hearty casserole. It’s time to get weird with Thanksgiving this year. Embrace it.

Swiss, pickles, pork, and ham. For the pork, I marinated some thin slices of pork loin in a quick mojo marinade and pan fried it for a minute per side.

I used buns for the bread cause this is based on a sandwich after all. If you can get actual Cuban bread, I would use that instead.

I tossed it all together along with some roasted garlic broth, mustard, and an egg.

Roast about 45 minutes until crispy and cooked through but not dried out.
