Quick Fix: Italian Lunchmeat Melt

It's Friday--the 13th. And I know that you are busy avoiding ladders and black cats. That is why I wanted to bring you a quick fix for lunch that is fool-proof. On a day such as this, there is enough superstition to go around, but I want to help make life a little easier.

Worry not! Lunch is covered! It's a sandwich, and a hot one at that! Who could possibly resist this Italian hybrid??? Not me, that's for sure! Did I also mention, this is a great alternative to frying your sandwich?


Do you own one of these brushes? Well you should! They are incredibly useful (and it's cute, too). Today, you will use it to brush a bit of olive oil on your pieces of bread. 


Place your oiled bread on a sheet pan. Then top one side with salami and cheddar, and the other with pepperoni and jarlsberg. 

Let's be clear that these cheeses are completely negotiable. You can use whatever you want. The meats? Well, you can change those out, but this is a winning combination, if you ask me. 

Toast this lovely combo in the oven on a LO Broil for 5-7 minutes until it looks like the above picture. 


Something I love: that the bread stays all warm and under-toasted. If you prefer your bread toasted, that is a simple fix: just go ahead and toast it on a rack instead of a pan. I like soft, warm bread. 

Put the two halves together. 


Put it on a plate with a pickle.... 


Slice and enjoy! 
(slicing is optional, especially if you are avoiding knives because it's Friday the 13th) 

Time: 10 minutes | Serves 1 | Difficulty: Easy! 
You will need:

4 slices of pepperoni
4 slices of salami
2 slices of bread (any kind will do!)
2 slices of cheddar
grated jarlsberg to cover meat
a bit of olive oil

Method:

Brush slices of bread with olive oil and place them olive oil side down a sheet pan.

On one piece of bread place your salami and cheddar cheese. On the other, the pepperoni and jarlsberg.

Place the sheet pan in the oven on a LO Broil for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melty (I also like mine a little crispy, but, hey, it's your sandwich!)

Take it out and put the pieces of bread together. Place on a plate and then slice.

Serve with a pickle!!!! Enjoy!
