Cuban Sammitch

¼ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup mustard

1 pinch cayenne pepper

1 (8 ounce) loaf French bread

8 slices Swiss cheese

6  slices Left over smoked fully-cooked ham

1 ½ cups cooked pulled pork, heated

1 large dill pickle, sliced thinly lengthwise

1. Mix mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne together in a bowl to make the sauce.

2. Trim off ends of bread. Cut loaf in half and evenly split bread to make tops and bottoms of 2 sandwiches. Spread each half on both sides generously with the mayo/mustard sauce.

3. Divide sandwich ingredients between the two bottom halves in this order: 2 slices Swiss cheese, 3 slices ham, hot cooked pork, pickle slices, and 2 more slices of Swiss cheese. Place tops on sandwiches.
