Gosh, this was not a good time for me to read this thread.
I am soooooo hungry now.
I'm in Miami so getting a "Media Noche" (aka "Midnight") or a Cuban sandwich is pretty easy but not right now, around where I work.

There are two popular places down here, Versailles and La Carreta. They make really good sandwiches, tamales, and the ham croquettes from Versailles are just terrific.

Shoot, I may have to drive by there on my way home today.

Thanks Sunrico for that recipe. I think you left out the most important part though.... the EAT it NOW part... :-)))

The medianoche earns its name from the time that it was typically eaten. After a night of dancing, the medianoche is a perfect way to staff off hunger. Its smaller than a typical Cuban sandwich, and it is made on a sweeter variety of bread (typically a yellow egg bread). On a traditional medianoche, there should not be any mayonnaise, tomatoes, onions, bell pepper or lettuce. Often times, one can use leftover meats from the fridge for a medianoche.

In making a good medianoche, remember this. The Roast Pork is what will make the sandwich, so you can never leave it out.

3 thin slices of ham
3 thin slices roast pork hot or cold
3 thin slices of Swiss cheese
3 or 4 slices of pickles
1/3 cut Cuban bread (sweet yellow bread)

LOL

Realtors & Bankers prefer baloney. Elected officials prefer turkey.

I cannot get enough Grouper, if it's real. Cuban sandwiches are a delight, always.

But, somehow, I always fall back to toasted cheese or tuna. No matter which state I'm in, those are always the best.

When do we talk about pizza?
