Nutritional Bonus: Small but mighty, this sandwich provides 81% of your daily requirement for manganese, a trace mineral that aids in both calcium absorption and carbohydrate metabolism. Our Cuban is also light on sodium and saturated fat, making it a satisfyingly smart mealtime decision.
- In a small sauté pan, melt butter on medium heat. Add mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Between bread slices, layer 1 slice cheese, ham, pickles (if desired), mushrooms and remaining slice cheese. Place sandwich in a hot panini press and grill until bread toasts and cheese melts, 3 to 4 minutes.
