“This sandwich uses a thick bread so it is best to pinch out some of the center to make room for the filling.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix the ricotta and parmesan cheese together; add pepper to taste; set aside.
  2. To assemble: pull out some of the center of each piece of bread to create a well.
  3. Brush each piece with oil.
  4. Place 4 pieces on your work surface, oiled side down.
  5. Spread the ricotta cheese mixture evenly over 4 pieces.
  6. Distribute the fontina and mozzarella evenly over the top.
  7. Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top, oiled side up.
  8. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  9. Put sandwiches in the skillet (in batches, if needed), cover, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until undersides are golden brown and the cheese has started to melt.
  10. Uncover, turn the sandwiches using a spatula, pressing firmly to flatten them slightly.
  11. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the undersides are golden.
  12. Turn the sandwich again, press with the spatula, and cook for 30 seconds or until the cheese has melted completely.
