Okay, this whole production number is courtesy of my beautiful daughter-in-law Lacey...
Who not only gave me two gorgeous grandchildren, Logan...
And Pearlie May... (her name is really MacKenzie... but she looks like a Pearlie May, doesn't she???)
Lacey cooks, bakes and teaches high school.
I LOVE THIS GIRL!!!
Here was her Saturday Night Panini Production.
Start with Italian bread... sliced ham... bacon, cooked and drained...
The bacon bits and shredded cheese were garnish for the Bear Creek Creamy Potato soup mix she tossed together in her spare time:
So you slice the bread in half...
And you can use dressings or seasonings or dijonaisse... As you wish...
Layer with cheese... we had swiss, cheddar or American... If you look carefully, you can see the panini stone press behind the sliced bread...
It's the "weight" that presses the sandwich together. Cast iron.
Now you add a layer of seasoned grilled in olive oil chicken breast tenders...
Note the very unclean/untidy kitchen counter.
It was a writing day.
And in Cordon Bleu style, you add slices of ham and swiss cheese...
Apply the top.
Now you grill it on a panini press. I have an electric panini press.
Lacey has a large broiler pan and a HEAVY STONE PRESS from
It was a present.
It is also useful for keeping husbands in line.
At least she says it works.
Respecting their privacy, I do not ask. Right????
Heat in the press (electric or on the stove) until sandwich is glued together by melted cheesy goodness.
Cut into serving size pieces.
