Expert Tips

You can substitute your favorite cheese for the provolone. Use your favorite English muffin; ours were about 4 inches in diameter.

If you don’t have a panini pan or contact grill, just use a regular nonstick skillet. You can weight down the sandwiches with a plate topped with a couple full cans of food.
