It’s picnic weather somewhere, right? Because I have been anxiously waiting to share these Pressed Italian Sandwiches with you.
Not that you should wait for a picnic to make them, because they are pretty much my favorite sandwich ever. They just happen to be the perfect picnic sandwich, since they’re loaded with meat and cheese, and everything is squeezed into a neat, compact package.
I’ve also served these sandwiches at parties and buffets and they’re always a huge hit. The best part is, they need to be made the ahead, which leaves you free for other things when you’re hosting guests.
These sandwiches keep well for 3-5 days in the refrigerator, maybe even longer, and the leftovers are great for packing in lunches. You can use any kind of Italian cold cuts and sliced cheeses you like in the recipe.
If I’m serving a crowd, I usually make two slightly different versions. The possibilities are endless, so have fun with it!
