Skinny Turkey Cuban Sandwich

If you’re craving a Cuban sandwich, this should satisfy your craving! I have a weakness for Cuban sandwiches, if you have never tried one, they are usually made with roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, thin sliced pickles and mustard, then pressed with a sandwich press or a panini grill until everything is hot and the cheese is melted. Very popular in Miami Florida. I think leftover turkey breast makes a great, lighter alternative to roast pork and it’s a great way to use your leftover turkey this Thanksgiving. I found this French bread in the deli section of my supermarket that was soft and perfect for a Cuban! Have one of these for lunch or dinner and enjoy!!
