Ciabatta Panini Sammies with Personal Pizzas

My wife bought some Ciabatta bread and wanted to do something with it...I suggested Panini Sammies, she said, "We don't have a Panini Press"...I just smiled.

The Personal Pizzas are for the kids.

First up, soften up some veggies, about 30 minutes at 250
IMG_2001sm-1.jpg


Here's the Ciabatta bread and ingredients: Onion, pepper, mushrooms, Garlic-cayenne Olive oil, sliced mozzarella, tomatoes, chopped fresh basil, and left-over Tri-Tip. The onions, etc were also softened on the grill.
IMG_2002sm.jpg


The Ciabatta bread was butterflied, brushed with the olive oil, and the ingredients were layered on.

Pizza ingredients were assembled, sauce, cayenne, tomatoes, basil, Tip-Tip, shredded mozzarella, and crusts. Not pictured: pepperoni, chopped smoked bacon, and sliced pineapple.

On to the wood fired oven, set to high (~425 today). The homemade panini press is shown: Grill Grates and a brick, perfect! Cooking time was about 20 minutes.

The grill marks would be even more pronounced if the brick had been on the whole time, (thought of it about half way through)
IMG_2014sm.jpg


These turned out great! Cripspy outside, gooey inside. My wife has already bought more Ciabatta bread.
IMG_2021sm.jpg


The rest of the pizzas were thrown on...the best part of these 8" pizzas is everybody got to choose their own toppings.

well, got home late afternoon. it was snowing up in Paradise and my wife didn't want to spend another day looking at houses in the snow. it was a long day anyway. no problem dear. i will take ya home (really wanted to get back to my MAK, don't tell her that). my wife was tired and hungry when we got home. heh, i go to the butcher dear. what would you like to eat (see how smart i am, while at butcher i'll get some ribs too, nice. i am so smooth)? she said chicken. cool. i can work with that. as i am walking out the door, she comes up to me a gives me a kiss and then said in a stern voice, "only 2 racks of ribs, no more". she knows me to well. i was going to get 3. oh well. at least she let me have two. alright, enough already. didn't DEB say make me a meal. well this is for Deb and my lovely wife.
going to start with jeanie's corn. love the idea. its was good too.

Sausage and Peppers

Had some of the in laws over for dinner and they requested that we do Italian sausage and peppers (a big accomplishment as they are VERY Italian!)

Here we go:

Fresh italian sausage onto the MAK @ 250 to smoke for about a half hour

Assemble the rest of the ingredients for the party

Sausage done smoking

Onto the MAK griddle @400 to finish them off

Brown up the onions and bell peppers until soft using the sausage fat

Add fresh basil, oregano, and garlic

Add Marsala wine, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste

Slice the sausage

Into the mix and drop the temp to 300 (gives you a nice hint of smoke)

Sausage and Peppers Part 2

After a 20 minute simmer

Ready to go

Served up on a bun

This has become a family favorite and I love the fact that my in laws love it! It is very versatile too you can do it on a bun or serve it over pasta for a nicer dinner. The key when doing it as a sandwhich though is finding good bread.
