Info
I was foraging through the fridge & I found a small amount of pepperoni, a hot Italian sausage, half a ham steak, & some five cheese pizza shredded cheese blend. Sounded perfect for a grilled pizza but there wasn’t enough so thought this would make a great panini. I grilled the pepperonis & ham steak and took the sausage out of the casing & then fried it up. While the pepperonis flared up a bit, grilling them got rid of the grease and crisped them up nicely. I also gave the side of the bread that was going to be the inside of the sandwich a light toast to help it hold the sauce without soaking in. After the paninis were assembled, I returned them to the grill which was set to medium low. I grilled them using a 1/4 sheet pan and a foil wrapped brick to help press the paninis. The paninis toasted up nicely and I have to say out of all of the paninis I have created from my own recipe, these are by far the best.
