I needed something simple but delicious for a party I was catering for this weekend. This puppy would be great for the pool, beach, or sunday picnic. And, it makes me feel all giddy inside because of the simple technique. I discovered this from a great website www.crepesofwrath.net. The very very best part, drum roll… it doesn’t heat up the kitchen and it is blazing hot this summer!
I went to my local farmers market where they make the best ciabatta bread, italian meats and cheeses. I bought a loaf and cut it along the center, lengthwise. I also bought Sopressata, Genoa Salami, Hot Capicola, Prosciutto, Provolone, Mozzarella. You don’t have to use all these meats, in fact, for my catering party I did a vegetarian one with sundried tomatoes and cheeses. You can be so creative with what you like! I topped the sandwiches with fresh basil from the garden. Then, I wrapped it with plastic wrap and placed a book on top to press overnight. No grilling or extra oils for this pressed sandwich. The next day, I have nothing to do but cut it and eat it!
