Oh my now I know what all the fuss is about! Made these for the super bowl. I did use french bread but to size the grill but add all the other ingredients and also a few banana peppers before grilling. It came out crunchy and simply delicious. I cute the portions down to finger type sandwiches. Definitely a big hit!

Love the crispy crust and the melty cheese. I made as directed and also with pastrami. YUM!

My grocer makes an olive oil bread that made these sandwiches absolutely GREAT! My boys and hubby ate almost 2 each last night. I added a side of marinara sauce for dipping; that just topped it all off. Never thought the Foreman could make a sandwich look so good. Thank you so much!

I made a vegetarian version with the cheeses, peppercinis, red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, red onion and a little bit of chipotle mayo on my stovetop grill. It was hard to flip them without them falling apart, making me wish I really had a Foreman grill -- but the sandwiches were fantastic! Seriously, really, really good. Yum.

I really liked this, I never thought to use the Foreman grill to make sandwiches. We used to own a sandwich maker but it was a pain to clean. Anyhow, I made some changes as well. I don't care too much for cheddar on sandwiches and Mozzarella is kinda expensive in a big ball. SO...I used Munster cheese, and provolone cheese. I also used the recommended meats, except for Ham used Virgina Ham cause I dislike regular ham. I left out the peppers and put dill pickle (the oval hamburger ones). Next time I'll omit the pepperoni and salami because #1 I can't taste them and #2 they are wicked fattening. I used a big loaf of soft Italian bread that I love. I ate half of what I made (see photo) with a soda and was STUFFED. At least I know for next time :)

What we did with it was slice the bread length wise (we have the large George Foreman grill), and then made it as per recipe. To cook, we put it in the grill, and held the top down (using some force) for 3 minutes, then, we let it cook on its own for another 3 minutes. Then, we cut it into 4 sandwiches. Simply divine. Thanks for a great recipe

Speedy and impressive! This recipe is really forgiving--as long as you have a mix of meats and cheeses, it's all good. Cooked it on a panini press. We skipped the peppers and did prosciutto instead of ham, and used pepper jack and gouda cheeses. Turned out better than most cafe versions!

Made these for dinner last night with sweet potato fries. The taste was fantastic and hubby said they were better than any he had eaten at a restaurant.

I love the idea of using a countertop grill; I've tried waffle irons, "toast and cheese" machines, cast iron pans weighed with bricks...nothing comes as close to the real deal as this method! Since I'm a vegetarian, I've tried your technique with different recipes: - Mushrooms, provolone, cucumber, spinach, tomato, thousand island dressing - Mozarella, provolone, pesto, dried tomatoes

This was terrific! My whole family was impressed and there were no left overs. Thanks. I saw Mysterygirl's comments about the using the George Foreman grill and did the same. This is a recipe I'll be using quite a lot.
