    French Bread swiss cheese ham and mojo pork
  • Heat up a heavy skillet (med setting), and add ham and pork, turning over once so that they are warmed through 
  • Layer the bottom side of the bread with your pork, ham, cheese, and pickles
  • Spread the top side of the bread with your yellow mustard and in the meantime make sure your skillet is still set to around a medium setting
  • Close your sandwich, butter the outside of the bread, and then cut either in ½ (for 2 servings) or ⅓ (for 3 servings)
  • Place the sandwiches on the skillet, and weigh it down with a heavy cast iron pan or other heavy object to compress the sandwiches.  You'll want to fry each side for approximately 3-4 minutes
