Shire (Beer Cheese) Cuban Panini


  • Four 8-to-10-inch Cuban sandwich loaves, halved lengthwise
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened and divided
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 pound sliced honey-glazed ham
  • 4 large dill pickles, thinly sliced crosswise
  • Ham
  • 8 ounces (16 each) Lively Run Shire
  • Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Rub the outer side of the top and bottom of each loaf with 1 tablespoon of the softened butter and arrange, butter-side down, on a cutting board.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard on the inside of each piece of bread. On the bottom half of each loaf, layer a quarter of the ham, followed by a quarter each of the pickle slices, roast pork and cheese.
  3. Season with a pinch of salt and close with the top half of the bread. Repeat with the remaining loaves and fixings.
  4. Heat up a panini maker according to the directions. Press the sandwiches until golden brown and the cheese has melted, 5 to 6 minutes.
