  • whole-wheat roll
  • 4 prosciutto
  • tomato
  • fresh mozzarella
  • basil leaves
  • 2 pickled hot cherry peppers
  • salt

Pre-heat a panini press, griddle or stainless steel pan over medium heat. Cut the whole-wheat roll in half crosswise. Lay the prosciutto, tomato and mozzarella slices on the bottom half of the roll. Top with basil leaves and two thinly sliced hot cherry peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Before covering the sandwich with the top half of the roll, scoop the excess bread out of the top. Cover the sandwich with the top half of the bread and heat on a panini press, griddle or stainless-steel pan.
