Gooey cheese with Italian meats, olives and roasted red peppers… tastes mingled with the light garlic flavor grilled into the bread…. yummmm! Antipasto between two grilled pieces of bread… delicious!
This time of year everyone is short on time… I know we are… sometimes I think I want a 40 hour day… but then I would just fill that one up too.
I’ve been working a job with a two hour each way commute… so that’s why you haven’t seen many posts from me… what with the job and the commute… it’s all I can do to have supper on the table and clean-up before it’s time for bed … to start it all over again the next day.
So the supper dilemma … what to make… I’ve turned to my Panini maker… it makes great hot sandwiches… pair it with some oven fries, or soup or even a salad… and viola! Supper!
It’s great for quick weekend lunches too…. I like to make a platter of grilled sandwiches… great food for while watching the games..
Tonight I decided to make Italian Antipasto Paninis… so easy… and so good! All the things you find in an anti pasto salad… salami, pepperoni, black olives, roasted red peppers, garlic olive oil… you can even add some greens if you like.
I used block mozzarella cheese… that’s what I happen to have had in the fridge… but provolone would be awesome on this.
I hope you try these!
Recipe: Antipasto Panini
All you need:
Italian bread loaf
Sliced Genoa salami
Mozzarella cheese or Provolone
Sliced black olives
Roasted red peppers
All you need to do:
Pour about ¼ cup olive oil into a small custard cup.
Add about ½ teaspoon of garlic powder and stir well.
Slice the bread into ¼ inch slices.
Brush both sides of the bread with the garlic oil. Let it set for about 5 minutes so the oil will soak into the bread.
Layer the cheese, salami, pepperoni, olives and red pepper onto the bread… with the cheese on the bread side.
Place the the sandwich in the Panini maker or on a hot grill until chesse has melted and the bread is lightly browned.
