2 slices of Italian Bread
1 tablespoon butter, divided
1 tablespoon prepared pesto sauce, divided
1 slice of provolone cheese
2 slices of tomato
1 slice mozzarella cheese
Begin by buttering one side of a slice of Italian bread. Place one slice of bread, buttered side down, onto a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Carefully spread half of the pesto sauce on the slice of bread. Place the provolone cheese onto the bread next followed by the tomato slices. Then, place the mozza cheese slice on top of the tomatoes. Finally, spread the remaining pesto sauce onto the slice of bread. Place the bread onto the sandwich and then butter the other side of the bread.
Fry the sandwich on the one side until it is golden brown. Flip the sandwich and fry the other side until golden brown. The cheese should also begin to melt. It should take approximately 5 minutes on each side to thoroughly cook.

1 large onion, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch round slices
1/3 cup Caesar dressing, divided
8 slices sourdough bread
4 slices provolone cheese
12 ounces pastrami, sliced thinly
Place onion slices on a preheated grill over medium heat. Use a grill basket or tray to help keep the slices from falling through the grill rack.
Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until lightly charred, then remove from grill and put in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing in with the onions and toss lightly.
Lay out the bread on a work surface and brush just the top side of each slice with a small amount of the remaining dressing.
Put all bread slices on the grill, dressing side down.
Put the 4 slices of cheese on top of four bread slices on grill, then top with pastrami, and finally with the grilled, dressed onions.
Flip the empty bread slices on top of the filled bread slices and move from the direct heat, close grill lid and grill for 2 to 3 minutes more just until the cheese melts.
Makes 4 big sandwiches.
