How often do you cook for only yourself? And when you do, do you tend to keep it simple, or do you still go all out?

My husband has been having some stomach issues lately, so most nights, he doesn’t really want any dinner. That leaves me to either eat cereal for dinner, or to cook for myself. I do admit that I eat cereal for dinner often, just because it’s easier than cooking for one. But I still do cook, not only because I enjoy it, but because you can only have so many bowls of Apple Jacks before you just really need some real food.

So what I have been cooking has been quite simple food, for the most part. Like sandwiches. I’ve had lots of sandwiches. Which I’m totally ok with, because I love them. Like this one – delicious!! It was nothing fancy, but so much better than a bowl of cereal!

Roast Beef Panini
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
An easy grilled sandwich made with deli roast beef.
Serves: 2 sandwiches
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons minced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • ⅓ cup slivered red onion
  • ⅓ cup sliced pickled sweet cherry peppers
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 4 slices white or wheat sourdough bread (1/2-inch thick)
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. deli roast beef, thinly sliced
  1. Combine mayonnaise, tomatoes, garlic, horseradish, ketchup, and cayenne in a small bowl.
  2. Toss onion, peppers, and pepper flakes together in another bowl. Drizzle with some of the pickling juice from the peppers; let salad stand for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread; spread mayonnaise on the other side. Sprinkle cheese on two of the slices, arrange beef on the cheese, then top with pepper salad. Place the other slices of bread on the peppers, buttered side up.
  4. Toast sandwiches on both sides or in a panini press.

    I love that you seem to read so many of the same food magazines that I do! "Cuisine at Home" is a favorite of mine! I saw this sandwich and thought it looked awesome.
    Btw, have you seen the redesigned "Cooking Light"? I love it!

    Awesome! Those panini look so good!

    I usually have intentions to make something elaborate, and then don't follow through. Toaster oven pita pizzas occasionally occur.

    I usually eat really boring food when my hubby isn't around, pretty much just meat and potatoes :P… unless I'm itching to cook. This sandwich has it all, though. Yummy!

    I'm sorry to hear that your hubby isn't feeling well these days, I hope it isn't anything too serious :/.

  7. Maria says:

    We love panini! They make the perfect quick meal!

  8. Paula says:

    Oh, so sorry to hear that your hubby hasn't been feeling well. Gosh, he must feel really lousy to skip supper. Hope he feels better soon.

    On the bright side, your sammie looks totally yummy! Panini's are the best, and I love how you composed yours with the sun dried toms and horseradish and those yummy cherry peppers! MMM, mmm, good!

    PS: How's the little sous chef doing?

    These look really good. The post I just made on my cooking blog would make for a nice topping on this kind of sandwich (especially with nice Swiss or gruyere in there): http://untrainedgourmet.blogspot.com/2009/09/incredibly-good-buttery-mushroom.html

    I hope hubby's stomach feels better soon. I have a hard time cooking only for myself and I understand completely where you're coming from. Sandwiches are great for dining solo – my go to is grilled cheese and I LOVE sourdough bread. This looks like a great sandwich!

  11. Abbie says:

    I never would have thought about putting all these things in a panini but it looks great. There's just something wonderful about a grilled sandwich.

  12. This looks absolutely amazing…like wow. Grilling sandwiches is just a fave in my book!!

  13. These look scrumptious! The kids are always asking for paninis!

  14. Oh my gosh, my dad would FLIP for this! Looks like total dude food for sure 🙂

  15. I like to keep things simple when cooking for myself, and this panini here is just perfect for me!

  16. Sandwiches are the best easy, quick and delicious meal! What a great looking one you have here!!

  17. Because I’m the full-time cook over here and rarely am alone, I just grad handfuls of food from the fridge when it does happen 🙂

    The fridge gets cleaned out and I don’t have to do any work. Win win!
