  • In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, mustard, cumin, paprika and a pinch of salt.
  • Split rolls or cut desired bread into slices (8).
  • Butter the outsides of the bread and lay out of a piece of tin foil or waxed paper.
  • Spread the inside of each roll or bread with mustard mixture.
  • Layer meats and cheese on bottom halves of rolls or bread.
  • Spread a layer of leftover cranberry jelly on top of the meat if desired.
  • Add a cheese layer and top with pickles.
  • Cover with the top halves of the rolls or bread.
  • Place on a hot skillet or pannini press.
  • If using a skillet, cover the sandwich with foil and set a heavy pan or pot on top to press down the sandwich. (Even a brick wrapped in foil makes a great press.)
  • Grill, pressing constantly and turning once, until the sandwiches are browned and crisp on both sides. (5-6 minutes per side)
  • Cut in half and serve warm.
