Roast Beef and Red Pepper Panini

A Simple idea for a delicious sandwich.

  • Ciabatta buns or thick sliced Artisan bread
  • butter
  • mayonnaise 
  • mustard, if desired
  • thin sliced roast beef - leftover or from the deli
  • sliced cheese - Swiss, Havarti, Provolone, Cheddar - your choice of one or more.
  • roasted red peppers - make your own or from a jar (pat dry on paper towels)
  • butter - second amount
  1. Lightly butter both halves of bun or two slices of bread.
  2. Spread with mayonnaise and mustard.
  3. Add several slices of roast beef. (at least 3 or 4 thin slices)
  4. Add cheeses.
  5. Add a layer of roasted red peppers 
  6. Top with other half of bun or second slice of bread.
  7. In a fry pan* over medium low heat, add a teaspoon or so of butter and swirl to coat pan.
  8. Add sandwich and weight down with a heavy plate.
  9. (*if you have a panini grill or griddle, use it instead of the fry pan.)
  10. Fry until golden - checking to see that the level of heat is not too high.
  11. Lightly butter the top side of the sandwich and flip over, weighting it again.
  12. Grill until golden.
  13. Serve with raw vegetables, a salad and/or chips.


  1. That is one delicious looking sandwich!

  2. A fry pan pressed sandwich is my absolute favourite! It looks delicious.
