Step 2: Prepare the panini Brush one side of each slice of panini bread with olive oil. On the other side of one slice, arrange the salami and cheese. If you’re using any optional additions, add them on top of the salami and cheese. Top with the second slice of bread, oiled side out.

Step 3: Grill the panini Place the prepared panini on a baking sheet and put another baking sheet on top to press it down. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees C (360 degrees F) for about 10-15 minutes or until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.

Note: The cooking time and temperature may vary depending on your oven.

Step 4: Serve This panini is best served hot. You can cut the panini in half and serve it as is, or with a side salad or soup.

About Salami Panini

 Salami Panini,
The panini ready to be grilled on the indoor grill

The star of this recipe is the salami filling, which is layered with cheese and other ingredients between two slices of panini bread. The assembled sandwich is then grilled on an indoor grill, resulting in a dish that’s crispy on the outside, and juicy and cheesy on the inside.

Indoor Grill Cooking Tips

  • Preheat your grill: This ensures even cooking and a perfect crust.
  • Choose the right bread: A sturdy bread like ciabatta or sourdough works best for paninis.
  • Layer wisely: Don’t overload the sandwich; it could make it difficult to eat.
  • Press down: Use a panini press or a heavy skillet to press down the sandwich for a crispy crust.
  • Clean after use: Regular cleaning prevents buildup and maintains the quality of your grill.

Serving Suggestions

  • With a side of chips: A classic pairing for any sandwich.
  • Paired with a fresh salad: A light salad can balance out the hearty panini.
  • Alongside a bowl of soup: A hot bowl of your favorite soup makes for a comforting meal.
  • With a glass of iced tea: A refreshing drink to complement the meal.
  • Served with pickles: For an extra tangy kick.


  • Can I use any type of salami? – Yes, feel free to use your favorite type of salami.
  • Can this be made ahead of time? – Yes, you can prepare the sandwich and grill it when ready to eat.
  • Can I use different types of cheese? – Absolutely! Each type of cheese will add a unique flavor.
  • Is an indoor grill necessary? – An indoor grill gives a distinctive flavor and texture, but a stovetop pan can also be used.
  • How do I store leftovers? – Wrap the leftover panini in foil and refrigerate for up to two days.
