This takes some of my favorite flavors, basil and lemon, marries them with grilled chicken and melting cheese on a hot grilled bun. yum. I will post the chicken recipe on its own as well (you can use scaloppine too, I prefer the thicker cut)
What I do is cook the chicken for dinner making extras and use the leftovers for the panini :)
This is a common lunchtime sandwich in Naples, Italy. When I lived there, I ate them at least three times a week. It is perfectly acceptable to add other stuff like capers, oregano, crushed black olives, etc. but the basic sandwich is so glorious that you really don't need to get complicated. This simple recipe is the epitome of summer to me. Feel free to modify to taste, but reme
Philly is not only famous for cheesesteaks. Another famous favorite is Hot Roast Pork Sandwiches! After searching the web for the recipe and not finding it, I came up with this and the results were fabulous and authentic tasting. This is also delicious served as a main dish instead of for sandwiches...you may want to slice it thicker and add a side dish or two :)
Tender, garlicky and full of oregano 'n stuff! Start this one a day ahead; the beef slices need an overnight stay in da gravy to be at their best. And please don't overcook the roast! As it rests right out of the oven and as it's reheated it'll stop mooing! Serve on crusty Italian sandwich rolls; add sauteed peppers if you like, but too much more and it starts looking like a Philly steak 'n cheese, a whole other beast. Prep time includes overnight marinating.
This was the first panini I made on my grill/press and dayam, sam! That’s an impressive little machine! If you don’t have a panini press, you can use a brick well-wrapped in foil and a skillet, but it’s not nearly as much fun. ;o)
Perfect for a Super Bowl get together! The ingredients may be doubled or tripled, if desired for more amount. Note: thinly sliced red onions, and green sliced ripe olives may be add to the sandwich if desired, but it is not necessary.
This is a quick, healthy alternative to the usual tuna salad with mayonaise.
Depending on your personal likes or dislikes of vinegar, I would suggest to add the vinegar gradually according to your taste.
I prefer to make a sandwich with toast that has been lightly buttered with margarine.
Why these sandwiches are called Italians is a mystery to me since not one thing on them is Italian. But here in Maine you can go to any little general store or sandwich shop and get an Italian. Ham is the original, but other meats can be substituted (you have to specify like roast beef italian). Amato's is a sandwich shop up here that boasts the "Home of the Real Maine Italian".
