Take your Cubano sandwich to the next level with this warm, creamy cheese sauce.


Swiss Cheese Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter or buttery spread
  • 1/4 Cup minced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons flour, divided
  • 1 Cup Blue Diamond Original Unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • 2 Ounces cream cheese
  • 1 Cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • salt and ground pepper to taste


  • 4 soft French rolls, halved horizontally
  • 1.5 Tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 16 dill pickle slices
  • 12 Ounces thinly sliced ham
  • 2 Tablespoons butter


Swiss Cheese Sauce:

To prepare cheese sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Whisk in 1 tablespoon flour, mustard and pickle juice and cook for 1 minute more. Slowly add Almond Breeze, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add cream cheese and cook until sauce is smooth and thickened; remove from heat. Toss Swiss cheese with remaining flour and add to Breeze mixture a little at a time, whisking slowly and constantly. Place back on very low heat cooking only until cheese is fully melted. Season with salt and pepper; set aside and keep warm.


To assemble sandwiches, spread roll bottoms with mustard. Top with pickles and ham and close sandwiches. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook sandwiches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until warm and golden brown, pressing down firmly with a plate or spatula to compress. Remove from skillet and carefully remove roll tops. Drizzle with half the warm cheese sauce and replace roll tops. Serve with remaining cheese sauce.
