After Ben made the Italian Stromboli, we had leftover pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. So Sunday night I decided to make it easy on myself and make a couple of pepperoni panini. This is a very simple thing to do especially with the Griddler. If you don’t have one or a panini press than cooking it like a grilled cheese on the stove would work too. This is basically a grilled cheese with meat in the center.
Ingredients (makes two)
4 slices of bread
4 slices of mozzarella cheese
a few tsp of olive oil for brushing (or butter)
Brush two slices of bread with olive oil and put on the griddler oiled side down. You can use butter but I like olive oil. Layer cheese and pepperoni starting with one slice cheese, then the pepperoni than the cheese. Brush the other slices of bread and put down. Grill or toast until the cheese is melted.
Serve with a salad or the side of your choice. It would also be good with a marinara dipping sauce.
Our picky 6 year boy likes this sandwich which is a victory for me. And it is a good sandwich to make on game days or lazy days.
