FAST FOOD FRIDAY
Had a great night last night... We are going to play a trivia game for New Years down here in the USA . We did 25 questions and put them on sticky notes all over the house and the guests have to guess them and then the ones with the most correct answers win. Not sure what yet but Norma and I are heading to the mall today to shop so we will find something fitting I am sure.
Turkey Panini Sandwich
4 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 Granny Smith apples—peeled, quartered, cored and thinly sliced 1 loaf Italian bread, cut into 4 equal pieces, then each in half lengthwise 1/2 pound smoked Gouda cheese, grated 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli smoked turkey Lighten up
Skip the butter and use cooking spray to keep the sandwiches from sticking.
In a grill pan over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cook the apples until just softened, about 5 minutes. Remove the apples from the pan and reserve; don’t clean the pan.
Top each of the 4 bread bottoms with one-fourth of the cheese, turkey and cooked apples, and the bread tops.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the grill pan over medium heat. Add 1 sandwich and place a heavy pan on top of it to press it down. Grill for 3 minutes, pressing down occasionally, then turn over and continue cooking until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes more. Grill the remaining sandwiches, adding another 1/2 tablespoon of butter each time before grilling.
Want to wish Krysta and Kevin a happy 5th Anniversay today. Krysta arranged a surprise for Kevin to Vegas. They left yesterday and there for a few days...but Kevin your surprises are not over..
