Layered Italian Sandwich

This is a combination of two recipes that I found. 1st one was in a sandwich cookbook that I downloaded. It is called"Sandwiches."  It is gooseberry Patch classic by Vickie and Jo Ann.  Since it is a download, I'm not able to give you the link.  They make their own bread, but I just used sandwich bread.  I also found a recipe in the Austin American Statesman for grilled cheese sandwiches. The writer used mayonnaise instead of butter to put on the outside of the sandwiches.  Never would have thought of that, but it was great.
3-4 thin slices of homemade salami (recipe here)
2-3 thin slices of ham
2 slices of your favorite cheese (the recipe calls for provolone)
5 slices of pepperoni
mayonnaise for the outside of the bread
1. With a knife or spatula, put a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of the bread -- save it to the side with the mayonnaise side facing up.
2. On the other slice layer the above ingredients, placing cheese on the bottom and top of the layers.
3. With the grill on high, place the bread with the mayonnaise on top with the mayonnaise facing you. Place the mayonnaise side down on the grill.  While that is cooking, put a thin layer of mayonnaise on the side facing you. Cook 3-4 minutes per side until the cheese is melted and oozing goodness out the sides.
