This sandwich is packed with smoky bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and tangy dill pickles, layered between slices of rye bread. Its a neat twist on the famous Cuban sandwich which also features pork, cheese and pickles but is pressed on Cuban-style bread. This dynamic combination of ingredients is ready-to-eat in about 15 minutes for a great family lunch. If you plan to take this for lunch, packaged the pickles separately and put them in the sandwich when you are ready to eat to avoid a soggy sandwich.


Uncooked Canadian bacon

8 oz

Cheddar or colby cheese

4 oz, grated, aged Quebec recommended

Dijon mustard

4 tsp

Reduced-calorie rye bread

8 slice(s)

Unsweetened dill pickle(s)

1 cup(s), thinly sliced


  1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  2. While bacon is still in pan, but already browned, sprinkle cheese over bacon. Cook 1 minute to melt cheese; remove from heat.
  3. Spread four slices of bread with mustard. Divide cheese-covered bacon and pickles among bread. Top with remaining bread slices and serve immediately. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
