You know how sometimes you go to a French Cafe or Italian Cafe and they have those cases full of freshly baked skinny baguette sandwiches with 1 layer of meat (salami, peperoni, and or proscuitto) with a very thin layer of cheese? Sometimes the restaurant puts it in a panini press to warm it up. And they taste so GOOD? That's what I wanted but I don't have a panini press and I don't feel like driving a cafe. That's how I ended up making my own sandwich.
