Here in United States and Canada we have adopted the word for any type of sandwich that is pressed or toasted. ( Panini) So sayng that is a grilled cheese sandwich that a I make in my panini press a grilled cheese panini sandwich? Not sure and I am even not sure if this sandwich that I am writing about is really a panini but that is what I am going to call it... I did use french bread, although I sliced the bread and probably should have just cut it horizontally and then maybe it would have been a real panini.. Well, maybe not! You decide.
I do know that whether or not this is really a panini it is good...
Turkey and Avocado Panini
2 slices French Bread cut thick
left over turkey
1/2 ounce Monterey Pepper Jack cheese
1 ounce Tillamook Chedder cheese
2 tsp Henri Bacon and Tomato dressing
butter or olive oil
Cut French bread thick, spread dressing on both inside slices. Add turkey, onions, avocado, and cheeses to sandwich. Spread butter or olive oil to outside of sandwich and place in press. My panini press tells me when it is done, but you would cook them until the bread is a crusty brown colour.
You can also make this in a pan and press your sandwich down with your spatula. A George Foreman grill would also work great.
