TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound medium red potatoes
  • PANINI:
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1-1/2 pounds cooked pork, sliced
  • 8 dill pickle slices
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. sticks. Add to bag, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Transfer to a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until crisp and golden brown, stirring once.
  • 2. Meanwhile, cut bread in half widthwise (save one half for another use). Cut bread in half horizontally; cut into fourths widthwise. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, mustard and cumin; spread over bread. Layer each with pork, pickles and cheese. Replace tops.
  • 3. Cook on a panini maker or indoor grill for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with fries. Yield: 4 servings.
