S.O.B. Panini | Mini Van Dreams

S.O.B. Panini

I’m alive!  Barely!  I have been fighting an ear infection since early Friday morning.  I can’t remember the last time I was this sick… I slept all day Friday and all day Saturday.  The only reason I dragged myself out of bed on Sunday was to work on homework.  But, I definitely wanted to share this recipe for S.O.B. Panini this week!  And, you can most definitely make this just like a grilled cheese in a skillet if you don’t have a panini maker!

Now, you might be wondering why it is called an S.O.B.  When Nana and I went to Arizona, we ate at this diner on Route 66 that offered an S.O.B.  I asked what it was and the waitress said, “Honey, when you bite into it, you will say ‘son-of-a-…'”  Of course, I had to try it.  And then recreate it.  Basically, it is just a roast beef sandwich, mozzarella cheese and hot jalapenos.  No mild peppers here.  It has to live up to it’s name!  Don and I have tried different versions since the Route 66 version, but this one by far is the best.  Enjoy.
