Directions Step-By-Step

Spread chipotle aioli evenly on the top and bottom piece of sliced Ciabatta bread.
Arrange cheese, and meats on one slice – starting with cheese and ending with cheese so the meat is in the middle. Add the onions and top with bread and brush with oil.
Preheat your grill on low heat and spray or brush your grates with olive oil and place the sandwich on the top rack of your grill - preferably the warming rack.
Close the grill and allow cooking for approximately 2 minutes per side, flipping just once. Remove from grill and slice on the bias and serve with bread and butter pickles and your favorite pasta salad.
If you enjoy garden fresh tomatoes and lettuce just add them after the sandwich is done grilling.
