Cuban Tostones Stackers - A Street Food Inspired Quick and Easy Dinner


Looking for a simple gluten free dinner to satisfy those food truck cravings? Well, look no more! This quick and easy recipe is perfect for those nights you want something super delicious without having to put in a lot of effort. I look at these as a sort of a deconstructed cuban sandwich, and they are completely gluten free! In my house, we typically eat three or four to fill us up as a main dish, and pair it with a salad or rice and beans as our side. Peep below for ingredients and method:


Ingredients:

  • Frozen tostones (I go with Chiquita or Publix brand) - 3-4 per person for 1 serving

  • Your preferred frying oil (I use vegetable)

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced cooked ham

  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced roasted pork

  • Sliced swiss cheese

  • Cornichons/gherkins (or your preferred pickle product)

  • Mayo and mustard


Method:

  1. First, pour a thin layer of oil, enough to just cover the bottom, in your frying pan and heat over medium

  2. Once oil is ready, fry frozen tostones directly from freezer - do not thaw! Watch out for oil popping. If it is popping way too much, lower your heat.

  3. Meanwhile - turn on your oven broiler to low

  4. Fry both sides of tostones, about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Then remove from pan and drain on a paper towel

  5. Next, arrange tostones on a baking sheet and top them with one slice of ham and spread a very thin layer of mayo and mustard. Top that ham slice with one slice of pork and one slice of swiss cheese. (*Pro tip- fold slices in half or in quarters to fit atop the tostone as pictured above.)

  6. Next, place baking sheet in oven under broiler just long enough to melt the cheese to bubbly goodness.

  7. Remove from oven and top with a cornichon and skewer, or your preferred sliced pickle product.

  8. Dig in!


I hope you enjoy this tasty, gluten free recipe!
