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.
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.
Hot Italian Panini Recipe
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.
- 4 thin slices Genoa salami
- 4 thin slices Hot Capicollo
- 2 slices ham
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- sliced Hormel pepperoni
- Italian dressing
- sourdough roll
- Preheat panini press or grill plate on high.
- Slice sourdough roll in half length-wise.
- Brush Italian dressing on both cut sides of the roll.
- Layer 2 slices of provolone on one of the rolls.
- Top with salami, Capicollo, ham and pepperoni.
- Layer 2 slices of provolone on the other roll; place on top of meat.
- Once panini press is preheated spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Close press and grill sandwich for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is toasted.
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.
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.
