The panini press adds a crunchy perfection to an already delicious sandwich.
WHEN I GOT A panini press for Christmas, I was taken
back to my college days at Longwood University, where
the dining hall had an awesome panini station. There,
my typical lunch included a roast beef and provolone on
sourdough panini with ranch dressing on the side. Yum!
After opening the gift, I felt my mind immediately
racing with recipes that I could now make at home. The
same ol' sandwich just wasn't going to cut it anymore.
From now on, it would be taken to a whole new level.
We buy turkey from the deli every week for our
lunches, so I recently began playing around with ingredients to make our turkey sandwiches better. The
Turkey and Brie with Apple Butter Panini that I came
up with is to die for. I also added slices of green apple
for a hint of tartness in every bite.
There's just something about the panini press that
makes a sandwich incredible. It toasts the bread (I
use sourdough) to crunchy perfection and melts
the cheese just beautifully. All of the ingredients are
pressed together, making them even more complementary. I don't think I'll be able to enjoy a plain
turkey sandwich ever again.

Note: If you don't have a panini press, you can
toast the sandwich in a skillet and place another
heavy skillet on top to press it down.
