A hot, cheesy sandwich with tomato, roasted red pepper, a few capers, and a healthy slather of olive tapenade. Delicious and, inevitably, messy. This month Cook's Illustrated
had a great tip for making hot sandwiches in your panini press without any such mess. Wrap your sandwiches in parchment paper before putting them in your press; it'll create a little envelope for messy cheeses and oils and keep them off your machine!
