Chris and I just didn’t get enough camping in on our seven week road trip so we decided to go do some desert camping this weekend in Joshua Tree.
Feel free to scroll through the slideshow of our pictures below and then keep scrollin’ on down to see what deliciousness we had for dinner!
We had quite a nice little weekend away but really, what’s camping without some grub?
This tasty dinner we had helped nourish our systems before the long hikes we did on Saturday!
This is basically a tasty Italian spin on a classic American hot sandwich.
The salty Italian meats, whole grain mustard, spicy peppers and melty cheese were SO perfect.
I really wouldn’t blame you if you ate two of them…I wish I could have!
These were so simple. Just wrap them up in foil and throw them over the coals in the fire pit.
Then set a rock on top to get the squish factor and voila!
If you don’t have a fire pit or heavy rocks nearby then a grill pan, stove and a hefty brick will work just fine too.
They turned out just right with a crispy outside and gooey center.
These would make a great super simple fall dinner for the whole family! They are very customizable so even the pickiest of eaters can tailor the panini to their liking.
Spicy Italian Meats Panini
Adapted from The Chew
2 subs or ciabatta rolls
4 oz. capocolla, rosamarino, Genoa salami, prosciutto or a combination of any of these, thinly sliced
4 slices provolone cheese, thinly sliced
1/4 cup sliced peppercinis chopped
1/4 cup whole grain mustard
Other optional toppings: pickles/relish, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, tapenade/olives
Pile the toppings onto the bread. Wrap in foil and place over hot coals in a barbeque or fire pit, or onto a grill pan on the stove. Place a heavy brick or rock on top and cook 4-5 minutes on each side.
Little Yellow Note: Instead of buying an expensive large package of fancy Italian meats, hit up your local deli and have them thinly slice just enough meats and cheese for your sandwich needs!
