We love making paninis and sandwiches in our house; it allows each of us to personalize what we want or we can create a fun recipe together as a family for all of us to enjoy.  The key to any good sandwich though is the bread and we faithfully use San Luis Sourdough bread so are beyond happy to partner with them for this cheesesteak panini recipe.  San Luis Sourdough breads are locally made which we love and their slow baking process produces a taste and texture that truly defines Sourdough.

A cheesesteak sandwich is great without doing anything extra to make it better. The flavor of the steak with the bell peppers and cheese is just heavenly. However, there is a way to make a different cheesesteak sandwich that is equally as good. Some may even say that by making the best cheesesteak panini recipe is even better than the original. My family and I fall into the latter and even prefer a panini.

Named for one of our favorites coastal California towns – San Luis Obispo, San Luis Sourdough bread has quickly become a favorite because of its authentic sourdough flavor & bubbling crusts.  They were founded in 1983 by two artisan bakers and I adore that the true artisan baking process always remains for their bread.  Every San Luis sourdough bread is hand-formed and scored and takes two full days to create.   Baked with simple ingredients and no preservatives,  San Luis Sourdough bread have always been a favorite for our family. Some San Luis Sourdough bread are also Non-GMO Project Verified which you can learn more about on their Facebook page.
