It’s a mere 21 or so days after Christmas and I’m already in a rut – a panini rut.  I think !’ve made five, six… maybe seven of them since getting the panini maker from Santa.  I just love ’em!  It combines my two favorite food groups – sandwiches and toast.  I’m in heaven!

Tonight’s sandwich started with chicken breasts that were pounded and then breaded in – get this – crushed wasabi peas! Yep.  And they were really good!  A customer told me today that she uses them on salmon.  What an idea!

The bread was a new ciabatta bread we’re carrying, and the filling was vidalia relish, mixed Italian cheeses, roasted red peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes.

Perfectly gooey and good.

Time to start thinking about the next one…
