Mesquite smoked turkey breast, Muenster Cheese, roasted red peppers, olive tapenade, and dijon mustard works for me

Roast beef, munster and feta cheese, spinach, little basil, tomatoes, and french fries. Yes! French fries! Discovered the recipe in a bistro in Toulon, France!

Would this be like a "smash sandwich"? The last time I was in Toulon I fell in love with them. It's been 8-9 yrs. and my recent recreations have been pitiful. I tried a chuck steak and wasn't sure what else to put in it. I also used french bread and smashed it between 2 hot pans. I used orida fries. Maybe I'll try McDonalds next time.

With yummy ripe tomatoes, I would do a caprese (I think that what it is called). Drizzle olive oil, place a slice of crusty bread, fresh basil leaves, thick slices of tomatoes, salt & pepper to taste, slice of fresh or regular mozzarella, basalmic vinegar, slice of bread with final drizzle of olive oil. Press till cheese is gooey and bread golden.

Some optional things: After cooked, I will lift the lid and rub a clove of garlic on the bread. Substitute mozzarella for a sharp provolone or gruyere. Lastly a slice or two of proscuitto.

Default I looooovvvveee panini

Hi..I'm glad I stumbled on this thread. I love panini. Actually I grew up on panini but the infamous panini press wasn't invented then.

Here's the thing with panini, you can put anything in it. For example, if you had chicken one night and you have some leftover..just cut it up, add some olive oil or mayo made from olive oil, then add some tomatoes, onions, basil, salt, pepper or whatever else you want into your sandwich. It will taste awesome trust me - I've been working on a panini recipe book and it's almost done so I'd like to consider myself somewhat of an expert!

Before you put it into the panini press...put some olive oil in a plate and dip the sandwich in the olive oil...I'm only talking aobut 1 or 2 tablespoons here...

When you put the panini in the press, use a knife to push the toppings in as you slowly squish it with the press...

And...voila an amazing gourmet panini. Enjoy!

I did this too, try a Cuban. I had it at a café in FL, but I made it better at home. Roast Pork, Swiss cheese, ham, pickles, mustard on a sub/torpedo roll. I have Wolfgang Puck grill from HSN.

we make a sandwich with grilled chicken breast, grilled onions, provolone cheese. I like to add some broccoli to my husbands and mine. the kids don't like it though! also, some bacon slices. they like ranch dressing on the inside of the bread. I use a creamy Italian for myself. grill em up! I use the pillsbury pizza crust dough for the bread. just smooth it out onto a cookie sheet and bake it a few minutes first, but not too done. make s a nice thin bread for the sandwich.
