It's my first full day back home after a 3-week stay in Seattle at my mother's. In the middle of unpacking, laundry, catching up on snail mail, and doing all of the other things one does after returning home from being away, I found time to play with one of my new toys - a Cuisinart Griddler. Here's what I did:
Fig, Apple, Brie Panini
baguette*, cut into 2 4" pieces then sliced in half, or 4 slices rustic bread
dried figs, thinly sliced
apple, thinly sliced
Spread jam on baguette or bread. Follow with slices of brie, figs, and apples (in that order). Top with other half of baguette. Repeat to make second sandwich. Grill in panini press 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
*No, a baguette is not what one would typically use for a panini, but it's what I had on hand, so I put it to good use!
