One of My Favorite Paninis

I make paninis a lot. I like to come up with new combinations of flavors. One of our favorites has a combination of apricot jam, brie, and sliced deli turkey or chicken. It may sound weird, but trust me it is delicious. I love brie, it is one of my favorite cheeses and it goes so well with fruit. I use sourdough bread with this because it is mild, but you could definitely use a nice multi-grain bread. Just something that will hold up well when pressed. The brie is so yummy when it melts.

To make the panini, first drizzle the bread with a little olive oil. Then flip the bread over and spread a thin layer of apricot jam on all slices. Layer next with thinly sliced brie. Then, place a couple of slices of turkey, and top with the other piece of bread. Place on a preheated panini press until golden bread. If you don't have a panini press, place it in a hot pan and weigh down the sandwich with another pan. Flip, and press down until both sides are golden.

Stay tuned for future paninis, and if you have any great ones, please share in the comments section.
