Top 5 Grilled Sandwiches

There's More to Grilling a Sandwich Than Hamburgers

The sandwich is probably the perfect meal. While you can stuff anything into it, typically it is piled high with meat, cheese, and vegetables between two pieces of bread. The best part is you can eat it without utensils and with only one hand. These recipes include virtually all types of sandwiches except the most popular of all, the hamburger. So whether you prefer chicken, fish, beef, or pork, these sandwiches are perfect for any occasion and hot off the grill.

    The real secret to the perfect cheese steak is a large cooking space. You just can't get enough room in a pan, so try heating up a large griddle on your grill. By putting bell peppers and onions directly over the fire for a minute or two, you can add a real grilled flavor to your cheese steak sandwich.

    This is a delicious grilled chicken panini recipe that's fast and easy to make. You can add or substitute any of the ingredients to suit your needs. And if you don't have a panini press, a grill or regular skillet will work as long as you have a heavyweight to press on top of the sandwich. A clean brick wrapped in a couple of layers of aluminum foil will do the trick. Remember to use oven mitts to manipulate the hot weight or brick.

The meat will be much more tender and flavorful. The recipe starts with boneless, thin-cut rib-eye steaks that are cooked on a high-heat grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remember to let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before eating so every bit of juiciness remains in the meat.
