There are few things my kids like more than tiny sandwiches. Seriously. Anything tiny and they’ll eat it.
Which obviously means I make my favorite sandwiches into mini versions so everyone is happy. These are the perfect quick, easy dinner or a great dish for a party!
Traditionally, Cuban sandwiches are made with roast pork. If you have leftover roast pork, by all means, use that! If not, turkey will suffice.
This month’s Improv Challenge featured pickles and butter – and these sandwiches just wouldn’t be the same without them! Pickles are an essential part of Cuban sandwiches, and I’d highly suggest going with a good quality pickle for these – the good crunch really makes the sandwich!
The seasoned butter mixture is nontraditional, but oh-so-good. It adds an amazing savory element!
The #ImprovCookingChallenge is a monthly blogging event where two ingredients are assigned to a month. Bloggers can make any recipe they like as long as it features the two ingredients.

6 sandwich stacker pickle slices, halved

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×11″ pan with non-stick spray.
Place the bottoms of the slider rolls in the prepared pan. Spread yellow mustard over the rolls. Layer turkey and ham on top. Place a pickle half on each roll. Layer Swiss cheese over the pickles. Top with the other half of the rolls.
Melt the butter in a small bowl, and whisk in the Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, and chopped onion. Pour over the sandwiches, cover with foil, and let sit for 5 minutes.
