Cubano Grilled Cheese
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A Cuban favourite gets a Canadian twist thanks to Heidi, an aged cow's milk cheese from British Columbia that melts down to ooey, gooey perfection. If you can't get your hands on Heidi, feel free to substitute grated Swiss or Emmenthal cheese for a more traditional version.

  • 4 slices sourdough bread
