I have a panini maker and have been trying to use it for all kinds of stuff. Who needs a regular sandwich when you can transform it into a panini? Of course, you can use whatever kind of cheese or deli meat you desire - the sky's the limit! Or at least, the deli section of your market is the limit!

    Build the two sandwiches from the bottom up in order listed: Bread, mustard, cheese, ham, pickles, red peppers, bread.

    Put both sandwiches cheese side down in the panini maker, close lid, and let sandwiches heat up. (I like to hold the top down firmly so that those lines become nice and toasty looking!)
