To Assemble

  1. Heat a sandwich grill or a heavy skillet. Slice bread horizontally; cut the middle of the bread out, leaving ½-inch on both top and bottom slices.

  2. Brush the sandwich spread on both sides of the bread. Layer sandwich as follows: turkey, salami, prosciutto, black forest ham, cheese, banana peppers, roasted red bell peppers, salt and ground pepper.

  3. Close sandwich and cut into 4 equal pieces. Brush top and bottom of the sandwich with butter.

  4. Set sandwich, butter side down in the sandwich grill or skillet. Place a large heavy skillet on the sandwich to evenly distribute weight.

  5. Cook for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side, until nicely browned and the cheese is melted, turning once. Repeat for the second sandwich.

  6. Serve warm, and enjoy!
