    CulinaryExplorer's Note:

    One day while watching food network I saw a panini made on Paula's Party and it looked absolutely delicious. I searched the recipe and realized I wouldn't be able to find much of the ingredients here. So I decided to try and create my own so to speak with what I could find. A few tries later I settled on this one and I am done searching! It is fabulous! A great blend of flavors! I am not sure how easy it would be to find those meats singularly but I bought them in a gourmet pack in the deli section. I had to name the meats "sausage" so that recipe zaar would recognize them, though I don't know that they are actually a sausage or not. Its more like a salami or pepperoni.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Meat should be very thinly sliced (I use the Daniele brand 'Italian Blend Gourmet Pack' found at a local grocer). Fry each piece for a short time, just long enough to heat them up a bit and release the juices.
    2. 2
      Pat down with a paper towel to remove excess grease.
    3. 3
      Cut the rolls in half and spray olive oil cooking spray on all insides. Then sprinkle italian seasoning over each piece.
    4. 4
      Arrange bread on baking sheet and put under broiler for 4-5 minutes until browned well.
    5. 5
      Build Panini in the following order: Bread, baby romaine, couple of rings of red onion, the first three meats, couple slices of smoked gouda, prosciutto, peppers, 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, 1/2 teaspoons olive oil drizzled over top and top the entire thing off with some shaved parmesan.

      This is an outstanding sandwich! I think it is more of a hoagie than a panini. but whatever you call it, it's delicious. The only change I made to the recipe was to place the gouda on the toasted bread first and stick it back in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a "T". My DH thought it worthy of more than 5 stars. Thanks for posting Culinary Explorer!

      Delicious sandwich!!! We used Swiss cheese instead of the Gouda but otherwise made per the recipe. Great flavors with all the different meats and ingredients. Made on French Bread. Will make again as my GF and I both loved them! Mike

      Terrific sandwich! We made these for dinner last night and it was a wonderful quick recipe. I couldn't find asiago cheese rolls so I used ciabatta rolls instead. I was able to find a pack of gourmet italian meats that Culinary Explorer talked about. They were sliced very slim and we sampled each one first, lol, and enjoyed them all. This is definately a flavorful sandwich. Made for the PRMR tag game.
