Mediterranean Turkey Panini

What do you love most about paninis? 

 I love when you bite into it and first get a warm crispy crust, followed by ooey, gooey, melted cheese and then you get the texture of the meat and finish with all of the amazing flavors blended together.  Truly one of my favorite things to eat. 

 I have made this version a few times and it is delicious!

(Printable Recipe)

marinara sauce or spaghetti sauce
ciabatta rolls
crumbled Feta cheese
marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
tomato slices, opt.
sliced smoked deli turkey
sliced Cheddar cheese

Spread 1/4 cup marinara on the cut sides of one ciabatta roll.  Top bottom half with 2 Tablespoons of crumbled Feta cheese, 2-3 Tablespoons chopped marinated artichoke hearts, tomato slices, sliced deli turkey and Cheddar cheese.  Replace top.  Cook on a panini maker or indoor grill for 4-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Serve with warmed marinara.  Repeat.  

Jenn's Notes: Add as much of each ingredient as desired.  I spray the outside of the bread with butter spray and cook on the George Foreman. Delicious.
