Ingredients

  • 4 small veal cutlets (about 2 oz. each), pounded to 1/4 to 1/8-inch thickness
  • 1-1/2 tsp. adobo seasoning
  • 4 hero rolls (about 5-6 inches long), split
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 4 slices thinly sliced honey baked ham
  • 12 dill pickle slices (about 2 ½ oz.)
  • 4 slices thinly sliced Swiss cheese

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle each side of veal with some adobo seasoning. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill or use grill pan on top of stove over medium heat. Grill veal cutlets 2 to 4 minutes, turning once. Remove cutlets to platter.
  2. Spread bottom and top of each roll with 1 tsp. mustard. Layer on bottom half of each roll sliced ham, veal cutlets, 3 pickle slices and Swiss cheese. Cover each bottom with roll top.
  3. Wrap each sandwich in foil. Place sandwiches on grill or on grill pan. Place a panini press or heavy skillet on top of sandwiches to weigh/press them down.
