Pan Tostado

I used to help my grandmother write letters to her family in Cuba. She would dictate the content, and I would write it for her while making some "pan tostado" (grilled sandwich). I couldn't write fast enough to have the treats.

Pickles were always served on the side, never in the bread.

This recipe yields 4 sandwiches.


4 bread (she always used soft hotdog buns)

4 tablespoons of butter

200 gr. turkey or chicken slices

200 gr. white cheese



  1. Preheat a griddle and keep the heat on low.

  2. Make the sandwiches by spreading butter on all sides. Add cheese and turkey.

  3. Grill the sandwiches for 3 minutes on each side. The griddle should not be too hot; it is a slow grilling process, allowing the bread to form a crust without burning.
