Prosciutto and Provolone Panini Sandwiches

This is not my recipe... and it's not really a guest post either.  I'm cheating today.  Ok, cheating is not the correct word... I'm taking the day off.  That's right, I'm taking the day off, but yet I'm still going to share an amazing recipe with you.   I received this recipe, along with the photos, from a representative of Carapelli Olive Oil.  I use Carapelli from time and time and have no problem sharing this recipe with you or letting you know that you can head on over to their website and get a $1 off coupon on any one Carapelli olive oil 17oz or larger!  And with those products you can make fantastic meals like this one:

Prosciutto and Provolone Panini Sandwiches
Recipe from CarapelliUSA
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup Carapelli extra virgin olive oil
8 slices rustic Italian or sourdough bread
1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
16 thin slices provolone cheese
12 thin slices of prosciutto
4 whole, well drained bottled roasted red peppers, cut into strips

Heat a Panini grill or waffle iron.  Brush oil over bread slices.  Turn 4 slices over and spread pesto evenly on the bread.  Top with half of the cheese, tearing to fit if necessary, all the prosciutto and pepper strips and remaining cheese.  Close sandwiches with remaining bread oiled sides up.  Cook in Panini* maker or waffle iron for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.  Serves 4.

*Panini sandwiches may also be cooked in a ridged grill pan or non-stick skillet over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side.

Thanks again to Carapelli for this awesome recipe!

I can't tell you how delicious that looks to me, especially at 3 PM. Mary and I will have to fight over it!

Great looking sandwich Jenn. When we buy a whole country ham, I often have them slice some up very thin to use like this.

Mary said...

What a nice sandwich! It looks delicious and I would really love to have one. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
