Bologna and Cheese Panini

This is a bologna and cheese sandwich you won't forget.  The secret to a good panini is the bread.  The texture of good Italian bread makes this a toasty treat.  Italian Bread is sold in many forms from loaves to rolls.  Use whatever is most convenient for you.  Make sure the bread is toasted evenly all over.  Allow to cool for a few minutes so cheese is melded to the sandwich.  It's so easy you will want to try it again.  Makes one sandwich.

Bologna and Cheese Panini
 2 Slices Italian Style Bread
 2  Slices of Bologna
 2 Slices of Pepper Jack Cheese
 Dijon Mustard or Honey Mustard (your choice)

Butter one side of the bread and cover the over side with Mustard.  Place the slice of bread on an indoor grill (such as a George Foreman) with butter side down.  If you do not have a grill place bread in a skillet.  Add one slice of cheese, both slices of bologna with remaining slice of cheese last.  Do not place cheese along the edge of the sandwich to prevent spill over while cooking.  Top with remaining slice of bread butter side up.  Press grill down until sandwich is flattened.  If you use a skillet press the sandwich with a strong spatula.  Cook sandwich for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown all over.  If you use a skillet turn sandwich after 5 minutes, or golden brown,  and cook other side. Remove from grill or skillet and let set for at least five minutes.  Slice and serve.
