Grilled cheese sandwiches are a staple comfort food we all love in winter. Try this Italian twist, and pep up your cold lunchtimes…

What you’ll need:

  • 8 slices bread
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 4-8 slices salami
  • 4-8 slices prosciutto (optional)
  • 4-8 slices pepperoni (or other smoked cold meat)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp butter

What to do:

Simply layer your cold meats and cheese onto a slice of bread. Top off with the herbs and another piece of cheese. Cap off the sandwich, and press down lightly to ensure it stays together.

Now heat up a thick-based frying pan over low-medium heat. Allow the butter to melt (you need about ½ tbsp butter in the pan per sandwich).  When it’s melted, add the sandwich to the pan, allow the butter to soak in a little, and flip to the other side for the same treatment.

You can also use a toasted sandwich maker, but will need to add the melted butter to the bread before cooking.

Allow them to cook for 3 – 4 minutes a side, or until they are the right consistency for you. The cheese will melt into gooey deliciousness, while the bread will have a crisp bite.
