  • ¼ cup mustard
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 1 ½ cups cooked pulled pork, heated
  • 1 large dill pickle, sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons butter, or as needed


Mix mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne together in a bowl to make the sauce.

Trim off ends of bread. Cut loaf in half and evenly split bread to make tops and bottoms of 2 sandwiches. Spread each half on both sides generously with the mayo/mustard sauce.

Divide sandwich ingredients between the two bottom halves in this order: 2 slices Swiss cheese, 3 slices ham, hot cooked pork, pickle slices, and 2 more slices of Swiss cheese. Place tops on sandwiches.

Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches in skillet and press down with a heavy weight (such as another skillet or foil-wrapped bricks). Toast sandwiches until bread is crisp and filling is heated through, 3 or 4 minutes per side.
