OK, very sorry, but no picture of this one. We ate them too fast :) But believe me, they were yummy and looked great too. The brilliant thing about doing something like this, is that you do not need a recipe. You can usually use what you have no hand as long as you think the taste will go together. I got the idea to do panini from MamaWithFlavor after seeing her wonderful last post on her Autumn Sandwich.
We had a very, er, hard, day yesterday at the Oktoberfest ;-) so have not even left our pajamas today :) So, we just used what was in the fridge. Here is what I did.
Makes 2 paninis
4 slices of Gluten/Milk Free Bread
2 grilled Red Peppers (used ones from a jar as had them on hand)
thinly sliced Pecorino Cheese
Diced/cubed Bacon (you could also use slices, but hard to find here)
1 ripe Avocado - sliced lengthwise
Mayonnaise (gluten/milk free of course)
2 chicken breast
Salt and Pepper
I marinated the chicken in the oil, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper- then grilled it on the George Foreman Grill then sat it aside. At the same time, I cooked the bacon dices/cubes.
Next I re-grilled the red peppers (to heat them and bring out the grilled flavor)
Spread the mayonnaise on each piece of bread.
Then I put onto each of 2 of the sliced bread (order is not important)
Top this with the other slices of bread with mayonnaise.
Then I put these on the grill closing the lid by pressing it down to flatten them as much as possible.
After a few minutes, we had the most awesome paninis ever!
So, when you don't feel like going out and you have a few things in the fridge and some GF bread - just throw something like this together. There are so many wonderful possibilities you could create :)
