Next layer the bottom of the baguette first with sliced pickles to cover the mustard then ¼ Pound of the thinly sliced roasted pork loin and ¼ pound of the thinly sliced smoked ham. Top the meat with 3 slices of Swiss cheese, and finish with the top side of the bread.
Lightly coat the griddle with butter and press 2 sandwiches at a time weighing them down with a heavy pan on top of them to press.
