TOTAL TIME: 17 min
– deli ham – shredded pork or sliced grilled pork, optional – ciabatta bread baguettes, 6 inch long, split lengthwise – melted butter, for brushing yellow mustard – Swiss cheese slices – dill pickles, thinly sliced
Step 2 – Generously butter the cut sides of each baguette and toast on the griddle over moderate heat until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the baguettes to a work surface and generously brush the cut sides with mustard. Layer the ham, pork, if using, Swiss cheese, and pickles on the baguette and close the sandwiches.
Step 3 – Generously brush the outside of the sandwiches with butter and set them on the griddle or press; if using a griddle, top the sandwiches with a large baking sheet and weigh it down with a cast-iron skillet. Cook the sandwiches over moderate heat until they’re browned and crisp on the outside and the cheese is melted, 3 minutes per side on a griddle or 3 minutes total in a press.
