This is the first time I have used my Breville panini maker. I won this tool in a giveaway from Le Brea Bakery and as most of you know, I love sandwiches and make them almost every Sunday. This panini maker is interesting because it not only cooks the sandwich but it seals it. I do not know how else to explain it. I want to play around with different bread choices so I can get the crust I love but also the size that fits the machine. The machine is great because it is self contained and easy to clean. It is small and makes 2 sandwiches at one time. This is not a sponsored post so I am trying to give some basic insights into the machine. This sandwich is one of those recipes where I take advantage of what is in the fridge. I had some queso fresco cheese and some Ajver spread – a Mediterranean condiment or appetizer spread.
- 2 slices thick cut turkey
- 1 – 2 tbsp Ajver spread
- 3 – 4 slices queso fresco
- 2 slices wheat bread
- 1 – 2 tbsp butter
Turn on the machine. Butter the one side of each piece of bread. Start by spreading the Ajver to one side of the bread.
Next add the turkey and then the cheese.
Top with the other piece of bread and place in the panini maker.
No need to flip the sandwich. It will take 5 – 6 minutes to cook. Check the sandwich and make sure the bread is cooked to your liking. Remove from the machine.
Serve and enjoy!
