Kealoha and I love sandwiches. We do. It’s kind of ridiculous. High on our list are two sandwiches: The Reuben and The Cuban. I’d already made a Reuben Dip…so I thought….by god…what if I created a Cuban Dip? What if you could put all the flavors of that sandwich with the pork and ham and pickle, but then make it dippable. It couldn’t be possible! It wasn’t possible. And then…you know what…I did it anyway.
I’ve made enough dips to know the basics. I’d need some cream cheese and then mix everything in. Voila! A Cuban Sandwich in a DIP FORM. Wow.
I share this with you know, just in time for one of those football type parties.
4 ounces cream cheese (1/2 block), softened
¾ cup honey mustard dressing or dipping sauce
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
1/3 cup dill pickle, diced
1 pkg. Swiss cheese slices, diced (about 7 ounces or 1 cup)
1 cup diced pork chop (use a leftover pork chop, or buy one at the deli)
1 cup ham, diced
Mix cream cheese and mustards until combined. Add remaining ingredients. Spoon into a greased shallow pie plate or casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until it’s nice and bubbly.
Here, I present to you the process of mixing this dip to prove I actually did make this, and didn’t just create the fantasy while using photoshop.
At first I thought it was 4 out of 5 Pretzels. I couldn’t eat a ton of it, but that’s probably a good thing. Kealoha on the other hand went crazy over it. Plus, he ate it for the next three days. I guess it proves that you could make this ahead of time and it heats up great. We give it 5 out of 5 pretzels, because it’s a sandwich in a dip. So exciting.
Check out my other “Football Party MAN Dips“. They’re not just for men nor are they dips just for football viewing. They’re just good, hearty dips that a big guy named Bob would probably like.
