Italian Pressed Sandwiches

Italian Pressed Sandwiches

Italian Pressed Sandwiches are loaded with turkey, salami and ham with a juicy olive-pepper mix that soaks into sturdy ciabatta.

‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’ 

Pressed without panini grill

My introduction to pressed sandwiches was in south Florida at Cuban eateries. They’re loaded with sliced ham and roast pork with dill pickles and provolone and grilled in a panini press. Italian Pressed Sandwiches 2These Italian ones are similar in that they have a couple kinds of sliced meats and cheese but with an olive-pepper mixture rather than pickles.

Never fear, you don’t have to own a panini press. You just need a heavy brick or similar to weigh it down. Time does the rest. Stow Italian Pressed Sandwiches away in the fridge for a few hours then pack them off to the concert even in the bottom of your basket. The sturdy ciabatta holds up to the juicy olive-pepper mixture. No mayo needed.

    We made these today and they were delicious!! I loved the olive pepper mixture. We used pesto instead of the balsamic vinegar because we love pesto so much, but I am sure they would be great with either.
