Grilled Turkey Cuban Sandwich* Recipe
- 2 pounds fresh turkey breast, boneless
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons salt, preferably kosher
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon Wesson® Canola Oil
- 2 (1 pound) loaves Cuban bread
- 1/4 cup Gulden's® Honey Mustard
- 1/2 pound Cook's® ham, baked, thinly sliced
- 8 ounces County Line® Swiss Cheese
- Dill pickle slices, to taste
step 1: To prepare turkey roast: Prepare outdoor gas grill for cooking by the indirect heat method.
step 2: Use a paring knife to make small slits between string netting over entire turkey roast surface, at least 1 inch apart. Place garlic slices in each slit.
step 3: Mix cumin, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Brush entire roast with oil and rub with cumin mixture.
step 4: Grill 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until meat thermometer inserted into center of roast reads 170 degrees F. Let roast stand 10 minutes before removing string netting. Then cut the roast into 1/8-inch thick slices.
step 5: To make sandwich: Heat gas grill to medium using direct heat. Split each loaf in half lengthwise. Spread 2 tablespoons honey mustard over the bottom half of each loaf. Build each sandwich with the sliced turkey, ham, cheese and pickles, covering with top halves of bread. Using your hands, firmly press to flatten the sandwiches.
step 6: Wrap each sandwich tightly in aluminum foil, place on grill and put a heavy iron skillet or a brick on top of the sandwich to flatten. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove from grill, unwrap and cut each loaf diagonally into fourths.
