Hawaiian Panini sliders, oh yeahhhhhh

Irisa Raina 9


These bite size sandwiches are just too good to be true.

The homemade aioli puts them over the top!

I'll warn you ahead of time they are a little messy. So have plenty of napkins around.

Use any lunch meat and cheese that suits your taste.

How to Make Hawaiian Panini sliders, oh yeahhhhhh


  2. Make this the day before or at least several hours before.
  3. Smash the garlic into a paste with the salt.
  4. In a bowl, add the garlic paste and lemon juice and mix completely. I use Meyers lemons but use what you have but please do not use the bottled stuff.
  5. Add the mayo and mustard and mix very well.
    Refrigerate till you are ready to make the panini’s.
  6. In a colander rinse and drain very well the sauerkraut. Put the butter in a sauté pan and sauté the sauerkraut and cook on low for about 5 minutes. Set aside and let the mixture cool.
  7. Get your panini pan hot, I set it to 325.
  8. Lay out all the of the rolls and put a small amount of the aioli on each of the bottoms and tops.
  9. Cut the deli meats and cheese to fit the buns, and then add the ham, kraut, cheese and pastrami. . I use three slices of ham and two slices of cheese and I piled on the pastrami for each sandwich.
  10. Place them on the panini pan, I grilled them for about 5 or 6 minutes.
  11. This will depend on your pan. If you don’t have a panini pan just use a frying pan and cook on each side.
    Serve with chips and baby dill pickles…..
