Eight slices regular white bread can be substituted for the 4 large sourdough slices.
If you don’t have a panini maker or closed contact grill, you can cook the sandwiches in a 10-inch nonstick skillet. Heat the skillet over medium heat; cook sandwiches for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
