I have a really cool (I think, at least!) post coming up later this week, but I realized I’ve been very heavy with the style posts and light on food posts lately! So I wanted to squeeze in this awesome, super easy panini recipe before I did. There’s something much more special, to me, about a panini as compared to a regular sandwich. In the extra few minutes it takes to quickly grill it, you suddenly have a warm, delicious meal that doesn’t feel everyday. And what cheese isn’t better melted?
These are a pain to cut once they’re cooked, but if you can do it patiently and neatly, I think this might actually make a cute appetizer for a party, sliced into strips! If not, they’re a perfect, easy, healthy lunch. And aren’t you relieved that for once I posted something healthy? I don’t actually live on chocolate fudge and meringues, I promise.
Turkey, Provolone and Apple Panini Recipe
2 large ciabatta rolls
1/4 pound turkey
4 thick slices provolone cheese, sliced
1/2 an apple, thinly sliced
Slice the ciabatta roll in half and fill with the sliced apples, provolone and turkey. Brush olive oil over the top and bottom of the sandwich, and grill in a panini press for about five minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tops are marked. Cut in half, and serve.
Makes 2 sandwiches.
