Southwestern Cheese Panini

July/August 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (78 votes)

Lots of colorful vegetables and salsa make this cheesy panini prettier than any grilled cheese you've ever seen. The small amount of Cheddar cheese in this sandwich goes a long way because it is shredded and sharp. Serve with a mixed salad and you've got a delightful lunch or light supper. If you happen to have a panini maker, go ahead and skip Step 3 and grill the panini according to the manufacturer's directions.

Perfect!

These came out delicious, and came together very, very quickly. I had no problems with the bread getting soggy.

These were delicious! Traded the onions for cilantro and Monterrey Jack cheese for the cheddar, but definitely a keeper. I used a hearty whole grain bread, heated my pan with the oil before hand, and then plopped them in there. I stuck an earthenware plate on top with a couple cans on top of that. Used just a bit of oil, and the times that I didn't have any visible oil in the skillet they still came out great. I'll never make an ordinary grilled cheese again, these were delicious!

Use your top of the stove grill pan. George Foreman grill for 1/2 the cooking time.

Really yummy sandwich! I was skeptical that the small amount of cheese would be satisfying, but it really was. I had no problems with the sandwich being soggy, and I didn't do anything special. Just make sure the pan is nice and hot before you put the bread in and you should be fine.
