Grilled Italian Hero Sandwich

Fine Cooking Books

This recipe does wonders for the familiar meaty hero sandwich just by pressing and grilling it. Warmed up, the deli ingredients just taste better. Of course, starting with the best-quality mortadellia, prosciutto, and provolone (look for versions imported from Italy) will also improve the quality of the sandwich. Use a thick, hearty baguette or Italian loaf to hold the generous fillings and don't skip the peperoncini and peppery arugula, which cut the richness of the meats and cheese.
