While browsing for quick and easy-to-make recipes on Delish, I came across the Hot Dog Cubans recipe. It looks so tasty so I decided to give it a shot, and they turned out fantastic!
This recipe doesn't require a panini maker, as you can use two skillets - one to toast the sandwich and the other to weight it down. The bread gets super crispy when pressed without getting too sharp like toast. All in all, a fantastic recipe for weekday meals!
