    For roast pork, combine oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well. Spread mixture evenly over pork. Place roast in a 2 or 3-quart shallow baking dish. Cover dish with foil; bake in preheated 350°F oven 2-1/2 hours or until meat is very tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer meat to a carving board; tent with foil and let stand 10 minutes.

    While pork is roasting, for pickled onions, combine vinegar, sugar, salt, peppercorns and bay leaves in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. Add onion rings; simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Strain; discard vinegar mixture. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

    To serve, spread chipotle mayonnaise over cut sides of rolls. Layer Pepper Jack cheese over bottoms of rolls. Thinly slice or pull pork into shreds. Layer pork, salsa, onions and Cheddar cheese over bottoms of rolls; close sandwiches with roll tops. Coat outsides with cooking spray. Cook in batches in a preheated panini maker 4 to 5 minutes (or on a preheated griddle or nonstick pan weighted down with another skillet 3 minutes per side) or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
