- 200g fontina, gruyere or other good melting cheese, grated or thinly sliced
- 4 panini (Italian bread rolls), halved
- 4 thin slices prosciutto
- 8 anchovy fillets, halved lengthwise
- 1 firmly packed cup rocket or baby spinach leaves
- Step 1Preheat a barbecue or sandwich press on medium-high.
- Step 2Place a little cheese on the panini bases, top with a slice of prosciutto, arrange anchovy fillets on top (as if they were pizzas), sprinkle with remaining cheese, then strew with rocket leaves and sandwich with the top half of the panini.
- Step 3Cook for 4-6 minutes in a sandwich press or 2-3 minutes on each side on the barbecue, pressing down occasionally, until the cheese is oozing, turning carefully.
- Step 4Remove to a board and cut each sandwich in half. Serve with remaining rocket or baby spinach or just wrap in a paper napkin and eat in the hand.
No panini? Why not use two Mexican flour tortillas to make a piadina – the Italian toastie.
