Cubano Rolls: Tasty Treats Inspired by a Delicious Restaurant Dish!

My Inspiration: Crispy Cuban Rolls from The Cheesecake Factory.

My Inspiration: Crispy Cuban Rolls from The Cheesecake Factory.

The inspiration for this dish came from an appetizer I had at The Cheesecake Factory while out to dinner with the family.  I don’t have a deep fryer so I had to adjust the wrapping.  I used crescent rolls and they worked just fine!

I bought some pre-cooked pork so I wouldn’t have to take the time to cook it.

This was the only pre-cooked pork that looked right and it was quit tasty.

I sliced the pork, swiss cheese, ham and pickles into strips to fit easily into the crescent rolls.

The ingredients: pork, swiss cheese, ham, crescent rolls and mustard.

I stuffed the crescent rolls with my strips of food and added the Dijon mustard.

Stuffed crescents.

The food hung out of the end of the crescents but that just made the cheese all brown, crispy and delicious!  Once the crescents were done I brushed the outsides with more of the Dijon mustard, just a little tip I picked up from Masterchef!

I made these twice, once for dinner and once as an appetizer for a cocktail party.  Lets just say that the appetizers were gone in about fifteen minutes!  They look tasty but they taste even better!
