Recipe - Italian inspired hot sandwich

Another go with the sandwich press, this time with some Italian flavours.

Good quality Italian or French bread, for example ciabatta
Italian salami
Cheese, I used Mozzarella
Roasted red peppers, sliced
Fresh basil

Start by heating the sandwich press/grill.

While the press/grill is heating slice the bread in half, lengthwise.

Spread the lower half of bread with some mayo. Put salami on the lower half, top with roasted peppers and the cheese. Finish off with a couple of basil leaves and the top half of the bread.

When the press/grill is hot enough put in the bread. Be patient and let it be in there until the bread is nicely browned and the cheese have melted.

Remove from the press/grill, slice in half crosswise and put the sandwich on a plate.


  1. Ahh - this looks great. Kevin did something similar to this - great job!


  2. Panini! Nothing I love more than a warm sandwich with some melted cheese straight from the panini press.

  3. Darius: Thanks as always!

    A&B: You're right, hard to beat.
