Okay, so this isn’t a club sandwich. But.. close enough. : ) It does have ham, bacon, and tomato which you do usually find in a club sandwich at least. We had a gorgeous sunny day today so I’m in the mood for sandwiches! One of our favorite good-weather dinners. And paninis definetely make it feel like a little more thought was put in even if it wasn’t ; )
We don’t usually use plain mayo in sandwiches either. I usually mix in some pesto or freshly chopped rosemary to some mayo and keep that in the fridge for sandwiches. So much better!
Ciabatta, or other good quality crusty bread
Bacon, cooked crisp
Red onion, thinly sliced
Slice bread, spread two sliced with mayo.
Top one with remaining ingredients and the remaining slice of bread.
Cook in a panini press*.
*Other options: Cook sandwiches in a heavy (preferably cast iron) skillet- top sandwiches with another heavy skillet to press them down as they cook. Flip and cook the other side the same.
You could also use this method in a grill pan.
