Y’all the Super Bowl is back in my hometown, and even though we won’t be going, and things will be different this yer for sure, I love the energy it brings to the area. Also, the Bucs are in the playoffs with The GOAT at the helm…it could happen. So, we are working on our Big Game menu, and this super Easy Super Bowl Snack Recipe is a local favorite for good reason!

Super Bowl Food Ideas
Each year I try to make foods for each team or location of the big game. It’s fun to make food that goes with the team, and we all enjoy trying new foods.
Easy Cuban Sandwich Bites
If you have ever visited the Tampa area, you will know how important Cuban heritage is here. From hand rolled Cuban cigars to fresh baked Cuban bread, you will have Cuban influences all over. And one thing Tampa natives and visitors alike love is a good Cuban sandwich. Everyone has their favorite, some love Publix Cubans and others prefer a tiny little local joint.
But, they’re super easy to make at home!
You don’t need anything special to make and enjoy these savory sandwiches, but I am linking my favorite cooking tools from Amazon below. Don’t forget to check out my Amazon Store for more of my favorite crafting, cooking, and decorating products too!

Cuban Sandwich Bites
- 1/2 lb Smoked Pork Tenderloin sliced
- 1/2 lb Sliced Ham
- 9 Slices Swiss Cheese
- 1/4 C Spicy Mustard
- Sweet Pickle Slices
Slice Smoked Pork Tenderloin – we rubbed it with our favorite BBQ seasoning and smoked it on the grill at 300* for about 90 minutes.
Add a thin layer of mustard on the bottom of the Cuban loaf. I cut my loaf into three equal sections to make it easier to press.
Stack pork, ham, and swiss onto the cuban bread. Then, replace the top of the bread.
Place the sandwich in the grill pan over medium heat and press. Once the sandwich is crispy, flip and press again.
Remove the sandwich from the grill pan and cut in half lengthwise. Then, cut into bite sizes.
Top with a pickle and bamboo fork.
Optional – Butter the outside of the sandwich before pressing
