If you have one, a panini press
is the best tool for preparing
this recipe. However, a grill pan (or even a large skillet) can also
be used. Use a clean heavy cast iron skillet or a spatula to press
down on the roll while toasting for best results.
Tip: For best results, cut the ciabatta rolls in half prior to
assembling. They are much more difficult to cut once assembled and
