  • 13
  • 2
    large dill pickles, thinly sliced lengthwise

    lb genoa salami, thinly sliced

    tablespoons butter, softened


  • Preheat sandwich press.
  • Cut bread in half lengthwise.
  • Spread inside top and bottom with mustard and mayonnaise.
  • On bottom half, layer pickle slices,Swiss cheese, ham, pork and salami.
  • Cover with top half of bread.
  • Cut the loaf into 4 equal sandwich portions.
  • Lightly butter top and bottom of each sandwich and press on the grill until the bread is crusty and the cheese is melted.
  • Slice in half diagonally and serve.
  • *** Note - if you don't have a panini press or a sandwich grill type appliance, just use 2 heavy skillets - 1 to cook in and the other on top of the sandwiches to press them down. I would suggest covering the bottom of the pressing-skillet with aluminum foil.
