Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

    Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

    Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Recipe: The classic Italian sub is a favorite of mine, but it can get very large, so some moderation is certainly in order when transforming it into a grilled cheese. These Italian grilled cheeses are one of the few grilled cheese sandwiches I’ve ever had the pleasure of presenting as a healthier alternative.

    Furthermore, Italian subs are so massive that my children cannot finish them. You can get the best of both worlds by reducing the number of layers and cooking the sandwich to a golden brown on the exterior and melty in the middle. To make the sandwiches more kid-friendly, I chopped them into wedges.

    How Do You Make an Italian Sandwich?

    At least three different types of cured meats are required for a traditional Italian sub. However, there is no hard and fast rule; I personally enjoy a combination of pepperoni, salami, and prosciutto. Soppressata is a great choice if you’re looking to spice things up.

    Add a slice of mortadella for a smokier, creamier flavor. But when it comes to cheese, I’m a traditionalist. Only provolone, thanks! It melts beautifully and has a pleasant mild flavor, making it the ideal cheese with which to pair these cured meats.

    Choose Your Own Adventure: Grilled Cheese Bread

    For grilled cheese sandwiches, I use whatever bread happens to be in the cupboard. It’s true that there are folks who insist on using expensive, crusty bread in order to prepare a decent grilled cheese, but they can take a chill pill.

    In my own kitchen, I use pretty much any kind of bread for this sandwich. On the day in question, I used regular white sandwich bread to make these, and you know what? It tasted great!

    Method for Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

    1. Make the Dad Add (optional):

    Toss the ingredients together in a bowl after chopping them to uniform sizes. Done!

    2. Prepare the sandwiches:

    Toast some bread and spread it with provolone. Spread some pepperoni, salami, and prosciutto on top. Split the meat in half and use it for all four sandwiches. Place another slice of provolone on top of the meat, along with a handful of fresh basil leaves. Put in the second slice of bread and give it a little pounding to help hold everything together.

    3. Grill that cheese:

    Get a big pan hot over low to medium heat. When the butter is ready, add about half a tablespoon each sandwich. Typically, I’ll prepare dinner for two. After the butter has melted, place the sandwich in the pan and brush both sides of the bread with the melted butter. Cook sandwiches for 3–4 minutes per side over medium heat, watching closely to prevent overbrowning.
    The sandwich’s cheese should be fully melted and the bread should be toasted after around 6 to 8 minutes. Done! For the final two sandwiches, simply resume. I usually prepare the first two for the kids and the second two for the adults, but you can keep the first two warm in an oven set at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

    4. Serve:

    Distribute chips, salad, steamed vegetables, and/or giardiniera beside sandwiches.

    Review about Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

    My family was really caught off guard by these flipped grilled cheese sandwiches. My four-year-old is the picky eater in the family, and I have a hard time getting enough food into my two-year-old. The younger one, however, absolutely adored this particular sandwich and gobbled up many large chunks all by herself.
    Well done! While this was happening, her older brother was revolting at the thought of putting all of these stuff in one sandwich. He insisted that I break it up on his plate for him so that he could enjoy each component on its own. After that, he requested buttered toast. He basically ate everything, but he did it in an annoyingly four-year-old way. But excluding provolone. The fact that he didn’t eat the cheese because he claims to be allergic to it puts our entire relationship at jeopardy.
