Really good! Yummy and quick to fix. I used 5 individual ciabatta buns and toasted on the George Foreman. Didn't have hot cherry peppers, but otherwise followed the recipe. The entire family really enjoyed these and loved the addition of balsamic vinegar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Easy in the George Forman, but I found the mustard and balsamic vinegar to be distracting. I prefer just the ham, tomato, cheese and basil.

Great sandwich! I used sourdough bread instead of ciabatta. Instead of putting the vinegar on the bread I marinaded the tomatoes a few minutes in the balsamic before putting on the sandwich. Unfortunately we didn't have any cherry peppers but it was great the way it was! Thanks Redsie for a great lunch!
