Preheating the panini press is a key first step.
I spread horseradish and mayonnaise on one side of the bread. If I'm using turkey or chicken, I spread pesto on the bread.
Piled high with roast beef, roasted red pepper, and arugula.
Topped with provolone, and as any good Jamie Oliver fan knows, drizzle generously with olive oil. Transferring to the pan and then flipping them is always a challenge. I've mastered a combination of tongs and flipper. (I use the term "mastered" loosely. When I made these ones, I had a slight mess when I put them on the pan. E says to Dave "Why is Mom saying Uh-Oh?")
But they all came together and they were delicious.
Now mix it up with different cheese, meat, spreads, and fillings. Easy and delicious.
