Pressed Picnic Sandwiches

Category: Picnic, Sandwiches

 Ingredients List

  • Gremolata ricotta mixture *preparation instructions below
  • 2 slices of whole wheat or whole grain bread
  • 1 Tbsp room temperature butter
  • 3/4 oz Fontina cheese
  • 3/4 oz Gruyère cheese
  • Merguez sausage, oven-cooked
  • Gremolata ricotta mixture
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c ricotta cheese


Mix lemon, garlic, and parsley into a paste. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix with ricotta and a splash of olive oil.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place sausage on a metal rack (which allows excess grease to drip down, cutting down the fat) on top of a cookie sheet. Cook sausage for 10-15 minutes, until firm. Cut into small pieces.

Spread a layer of ricotta gremolata on both inside pieces of bread.

Add a thin layer of Fontina cheese, followed by a thin layer of merguez sausage. Finally, add a thin layer of Gruyère cheese and place the second bread slice on top.

Lightly butter both sides. Cut in halves and place on a panini press. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
