  • On the other half of the sandwich, place the avocado slices. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle goat cheese over avocado slices. Close sandwiches.

  • Preheat a panini press according to manufacturer's directions. Spray panini press with cooking spray. Place sandwiches into the press and close. Cook until the bread is toasted and crisp, with golden brown grill marks and the cheese begins to melt, 5 to 8 minutes.

Tips

You can use any kind of bread for panini, but the most popular is ciabatta. The bread should be sliced thin enough that the sandwich can be grilled and cooked nicely on the outside, with the inside fillings warmed and melded together.

This was pretty good. Very light sandwich. Perfect for the summer. Only reason I wont go 5 stars is the ingredient list. I probably wont make this again because the items necessary arent something I would keep on hand. In the end its just a sandwich... Read More

Everyone loved this panini! We used a Tuscan bread which was delicious. The goat cheese along with the red onion gave it some tartness that blended well with the other ingredients! We will definitely make again! Read More

We ate every scrap!!! Very good taste combination and the Dijon dressing really makes it good. I don t have a panini maker so put the ingredients between two sprouted tortillas making it more like a quesadilla. Used feta rather than goat cheese because it s what I had. Sliced up leftover rotisserie chicken very thinly because we had no turkey. Followed everything else as stated in the recipe. Made my own Dijon dressing with garlic easy to do. This recipe is a keeper! Healthy too. Read More
