Your favorite cuban sandwich, but perfected for summer grilling! Cheese stuffed rolls elevate this recipe to the next level!


12 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, dough thawed to room temperature
8 oz Swiss cheese, cubed into 24 pieces
1-2 lb Pork roast, pre-cooked, sectioned into 1/2-1 inch pieces.
Sliced deli ham, folded
Dill pickle chips


  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 5-10 minutes to prevent burning on grill.
  2. Cut each roll in half. Wrap each roll half around each cube of cheese. Make sure the dough is sealed over the cheese.
  3. Alternate the items on the skewer (we did: cheese stuffed roll, pork roast, pickle chip, folded slice of ham, repeat.)
  4. Grill on direct medium heat, closing the grill lid so the dough will cook through. Once the rolls are browned, remove the skewers from the grill.
