  8 servings
2+ Pounds turkey breast, boneless
2 Cloves fresh garlic, peeled and cut into thin slices
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 Teaspoons coarse salt (kosher or coarse sea salt)
1 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 15-inch Cuban bread loaves
1/4 Cup honey mustard
8 Ounces turkey ham, thinly sliced
As needed dill pickle spears
8 Ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
As needed vegetable cooking spray
Make thin slits, over turkey breast surface, about 1-inch apart. Insert garlic slices into each slit and pinch slits closed. Brush turkey with oil.

In a small bowl, combine cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper together. Rub turkey with mixture.

Roast, on a rack, in a shallow pan, in a preheated 325 degree F oven until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F, about 50 to 60 minutes.

Let turkey rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

When turkey has cooled, cut into thin 1/8-inch slices.

Slice loaves horizontally to open. Spread a thin layer of mustard on top and bottom halves of bread. Arrange cooled sliced turkey, turkey ham, pickle slices and Swiss cheese evenly over the bread.

Cover the sandwiches with the top halves of the bread. Press firmly to flatten the sandwich. Cut each loaf into 4 sections.

To order: Grill sandwiches in a hot buttered sandwich press until flat, bread is browned and cheese has melted.

Remove from heat and serve immediately.
