How to Make Grilled Italian Panini


  • 1Spread chipotle aioli evenly on the top and bottom piece of sliced Ciabatta bread.
  • 2Arrange 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.
  • 3Preheat 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.
  • 4Close 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.
  • 5If you enjoy garden fresh tomatoes and lettuce just add them after the sandwich is done grilling.
