Media Noche

The Media Noche (also written medianoche) is like a Cuban sandwich, but made on lighter-weight, egg-enriched bread rather than the typical French loaf. Like a Cuban, it contains ham and roast pork, cheese, pickles, mustard, and mayo and is toasted in a plancha so that the ingredients meld together. The sweet bread develops a fine crunch and the whole sandwich is less filling than a traditional Cuban, making it an ideal wee-hours snack. That is how it gets its name; medianoche means midnight in Spanish.
