David’s Pressed Sandwiches
A pressed sandwich, also called a panini, is exactly that. Load up a piece of bread with your favorite combination of meats, cheeses, and toppings. Top it off with another piece of bread. Brush the top with a little olive oil and place it in a hot pan. Press it down with a heavy frying pan or foil covered brick and cook over medium to medium high heat for 3 or 4 minutes. Flip and repeat process.
You will end up with a toasty, golden, warm delight.
Suggestions: anything you can imagine will be better than you think!
