2slicesItalianfocaccia or ciabatta bread, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3cupshredded Italian cheese blend or 3 thin slices fresh mozzarella cheese
Spread the butter on the outside of the bread. Open the slices and spread the mayonnaise, sprinkle on the salt and pepper and layer the rest of the ingredients.
Preheat a skillet on medium-high. Add the sandwiches and turn the heat down to low. Place another pot or skillet on top of the sandwich to press down the sandwich. Grill slowly about 5 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure it's not getting too brown. Turn the sandwiches, weight the other side and grill about 5 minutes more until the cheese is melted and the sandwiches are hot all the way through.
Let the sandwich rest about 5 minutes before you cut into it, then grab a napkin--this one can get messy!
