Toasted Cheese Panino Anyone?
I made myself an interesting -- at least to me -- toasted cheese sandwich for a sort of dinner this evening.
I started off with some rye bread and filled it with some Vermont cheddar, fontina, roasted garlic cheese, Boars Head Cajun style turkey, some dijon mustard and a slice of tomato. I then buttered one slice of the bread and put the sandwich, butter side down in a hot grill pan, placed a foil-wrapped brick on top of the sandwich and grilled till the bottom slice of bread had toasted. Then I lifted the brick, buttered the top slice, turned the sandwich over, topped it again with the brick and toasted till the other side was nice and browned. It was terrific with a glass of Sam Adams Boston ale.
Basically, my toasted cheese sandwich was a panino. My ale was an ale.
