Avo Spinich Panini













Those of you who know me will know I wasn't blessed with the cooking genes my delightful cousin's have. ;) But! I did spot this on yumsugar and thought it looked too good (also healthy!) not to share!

INGREDIENTS

2 thick slices of sourdough bread
1 teaspoon aioli or mayonnaise
1 slice of pepperjack cheese
1 cup fresh spinach
1/4 cup diced tomato
1/4 of an avocado, cut into slices

DIRECTIONS
  1. Spread aioli or mayonnaise on one slice of sourdough. Top with pepperjack cheese.
  2. Arrange the spinach leaves evenly over the cheese. Top with diced tomato. (Tip: Don't be afraid to put a lot of spinich! It will wilt in the heat and get pressed down as the bread flattens.)
  3. Cover the spinach and tomato with sliced avocado and second slice of sourdough.
  4. In a panini press or grill pan, cook the panini until the bread is lightly browned and crisp. Slice in half and serve.
Makes 1 sandwich.

Yums! Thanks for posting it! I'm excited you're posting on the blog, Jennie! :) You can also post stuff you've tried at restaurants too - doesn't have to be a recipe :)

I'm going to try this sandwich soon!
