1 serving

Ingredients

1 Cuban medianoche roll or a brioche hot dog roll (5 to 6 inches long)

2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened, plus more as needed

3 1/2 ounces sliced turkey breast

1 1/2 tablespoons strawberry preserves, plus more as needed (see Tip)

1/2 teaspoon unsalted butter

Directions

Slice or split the bread roll in half to fill as a sandwich. Spread a 1/3-inch-thick layer of cream cheese on the bottom half. Lay turkey neatly on top of the cream cheese. Do not overfill the sandwich. Evenly spread jam on the top half of the bread and sandwich with the bottom.

In a pan over medium-low heat, melt butter, swirling to evenly coat the pan. Place the sandwich bottom side down in the pan and press it with a spatula or a cast-iron skillet. Heat to warm the sandwich, until the bottom is lightly toasted but not burned, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip the sandwich and repeat with the other side. Remove from the heat, cut the sandwich in half at an angle and serve immediately.
