Stacked Panini Sticks

Serves 6

This reminds me of my favorite panini sandwich, which has ham, cheese and arugula. Here’s my version of this panini on a stick!


  • 6 round, crusty rolls
  • 1 pound spreadable cheese, such as Robiola (Italian cheese) or Alouette brand garlic and herb cheese
  • 1/2 pound prosciutto di Parma (Italian ham, available at deli counter)
  • 2 cups arugula, well washed
  • 6 bamboo skewers (8-inch)


  1. Split rolls and spread the bottom half of each roll with cheese.
  2. Top with a few pieces of arugula and two thin prosciutto di Parma slices; set the top of the roll in place and press down.
  3. Cut into quarters or grill to toast the roll, then cut.
  4. Stack the four quarters of each sandwich on a stick.
  5. Serve or pack the stacked sticks into large sealable storage bags.
