adapted from Mad Hungry by Lucinda Scala Quinn

Ingredients

  • 1 ciabatta loaf
  • 1/4 pound prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 pound salami, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 pound mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 4 ounces sun dried tomatos, sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • a pinch of fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Directions

Prep: 1. Slice ciabatta bread, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes. Make: 1. Drizzle cut sides of bread with olive oil. 2. On one side, lay prosciutto, salami and mozzarella, pepper, oregano and sun-dried tomatoes and cover with other half of bread. 3. Spread butter on the outside of the bread. 4. Cut sandwich in half. 5. Cook each side over medium heat, covered with a lid, for about 2-3 minutes, until golden and cheese has melted. If you want, press the sandwich with a heavy frying pan or use a panini press if you have one.

Notes

This recipe originally called for cold pressed sandwiches, but here at gatheredtable, we love melted cheese! If tomatoes are in season substitute fresh for the sun dried.
