Alvarado St. Bakery Bread and Monte Cubano Sandwich

Hello again Everyone!

I am FINALLY feeling better after a week of being sick, yuck! Would not wish that on anyone.


Anyways, we have a review for Alvarado St. Bakery and giveaway. I personally am a white bread person, my “go to” is normally not wheat bread or anything other than white bread. Alvarado St. Bakery really impressed me. Their breads are full so of flavor and the texture is very pleasing to the palate. Their breads have a nutty whole grain flavor. Alvarado has a wonderful line of breads and products (pizza, tortillas) to suit your needs and wants. I personally am not sure if I will go back to white bread after this taste test! Also, an interesting tidbit, Alvarado St. Bakery is solar powered!


Now for the recipe. Now I have to gush a little bit about this. I was very skeptical on a fried sandwich that was dipped in eggs…but oh my goodness it was heavenly! Crispy bread on the outside, melted cheese, meat and crisp pickles on the inside. Delicious!


Monte Cubano Sandwich

You Will Need:

2 slices firm bread
1 to 2 teaspoons mustard
4 or 5 dill pickle rounds
2 slices baked ham
2 slices smoked turkey
1 thin slice Swiss cheese
1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 large egg
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Let’s Get Started!


Spread 1 slice of bread with mustard and top with pickles, meats, and cheese. Spread mayonnaise on remaining slice of bread and piece together sandwich.


Beat together egg, milk, and 1/8 tsp each of salt and pepper, then soak sandwich in egg mixture. Treat it like cooking french toast, let it coat the bread but don’t leave it in long enough to make it soggy.


Melt butter in a heavy medium skillet over medium-low heat. Cook sandwich, uncovered, until underside is well browned, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook remaining side, covered, until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.


Finally, DIG IN! And you can thank me later for showing you this recipe. 🙂
