Panino with mortadellaPanino with mortadella
Mortadella is a very popular panino ingredient. It is a large sausage made of pork and is often studded with pistachios or black pepper. The original Mortadella has been produced in Bologna from 14th century, a delicacy coming from the region of Emilia-Romagna but celebrated everywhere.
The simple secret for a perfect panino is to cut very thinly sliced of mortadella because thin slices enhance the unique aroma of the sausage. Choose sourdough bread and fill with mortadella. Other optional ingredients depend on your taste, a good example are some slices of cheese (provolone will be perfect!), tomatoes, salad...Grill the panino for a few minutes and eat immediately!
