Cuban Sandwich Slider Recipe

recipe adapted from Southern Living


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1, 12-oz package of King’s Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  • 4 oz. deli ham, thinly sliced
  • 4 oz. deli roasted pork, thinly sliced
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 3 tablespoons mustard


1. Preheat oven to 400º.

2. Spread olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven to heat.

3. Remove rolls from the package and do not separate. Slice in half horizontally so you have 1 big top and 1 big bottom.

4. Spread the mustard on the bottom.

4. Next, layer the ham, pork, Swiss cheese and chopped pickles.

5. Add the top of the rolls to create a giant sandwich.

6. Remove the hot pan from the oven and carefully place the sandwich in the pan. Place a cast iron skillet on top of the sandwich. This will result in a crispy, pressed sandwich.

7. Bake at 400º for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes.

8. Cut into 12 sliders and serve.
