"The Godfather" Panini

I don't know about all of you but this weather here in NY for the end of November is just bizarre. The good this is I was able to decorate for the holidays outside in nice sunny warm 57 degree weather. Even more bizarre. The weather for our Christmas parade will be warm also and its never warm! Not to mention my flower pots and bushes are still bloomimg! Even the crocuses came up and opened. That right there is just a bit scary. What to make of the the long winter or will there be one?

This panini tastes just like your favorite stromboli. No fuss, easy as pie. Same great taste in half the time. You can also make a bunch of these , cut them up and serve for a party. I have grilled them up for a quick and fast sammie as well. Dip them is a side of your favorite marinara sauce.


2 slices Ham Cappy Or Any Ham Will Do
2 slices Pepperoni
2 slices Genoa Salami
1 whole English Muffin Or Any Sliced Crusty Bread Will Do  (ex. Ciabatta)
2 slices Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
2 slices Provolone Cheese

Preparation Instructions

Layer all the meat on an English muffin or bread; top with cheese. Grill on a panini press until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
Note: If you dont have a panini press you can use a George Forman grill or a grill pan on the stove with a heavy pot on top of the sandwich to weigh it down.
