Recipe By: Emeril Lagasse

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 slices ciabatta bread or other rustic Italian white bread, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced provolone
  • 1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and sliced
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced genoa salami


  • Whisk 6 tablespoons of the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to blend.
  • Arrange the slices of bread on a flat work surface and, using a brush, divide the vinaigrette equally among 1 side of each slice.
  • Divide the provolone equally among the bread slices.
  • Top 6 of the slices of bread equally with the sliced artichoke hearts and sliced genoa salami and then place the remaining 6 slices on top.
  • Brush the outsides of each sandwich with some of the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Heat a grill, large skillet or grill pan over medium heat.
  • Add the sandwiches and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, pressing occasionally to compact with a large spatula or the bottom of a heavy small saucepan, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Remove the sandwiches from the grill, cut in half and serve.
