My family loves sandwiches, especially hot ones.  In fact, when we order from the local pizza place my husband almost always orders a hot sandwich instead of pizza.  And like most kids Bubbles loves a good grilled cheese.

Hot Italian Panini Recipe #PepItUp

A couple of years ago I splurged and bought a panini press.  I knew it would get lots of use – there’s just something about toasted bread filled with warm, melty cheese and other add-ins that can’t be beat.  And I was definitely right as we use it at least once a week.

One of my husband’s favorites from all the paninis I’ve made is my Hot Italian Panini.  Layers of meat stacked high, cheese on bottom and top, and then that satisfying crunch when you bite through the sourdough bread.  It’s the perfect hearty lunch or dinner on a cold winter day.

A stack of deliciousness in this Hot Italian Panini recipe #PepItUp

Aside from being delicious and filling, another thing I love about this sandwich is how fast it is to make.  You can have a meal on the table in under 15 minutes.  Around here that’s kind of important because when Bubbles finally decides she’s hungry or you can pull her away from playing, she wants to eat right now.

Hot Italian Panini recipe is easy to make with a panini press or grill plates #PepItUp

If you’re not familiar with all the meats I used (I know I wasn’t until the first time hubby requested one) they can all usually be found prepackaged in the deli section.  If you can’t find it pre-sliced then check at the deli counter.  And I use Hormel Pepperoni in mine which can usually be found in three or four places in the store in those pillow packs.
