What kind of sandwich eater are you?
Are you the person who adores a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day for lunch? Or do hot, beefy sandwiches with crusty bread dipped into a savory sauce make you a happy camper.
Maybe you’re a wrap kind of person. You love taking your favorite ingredients (in my case this roasted vegetable wrap), and folding them up into your favorite tortilla.
Do wraps qualify as sandwiches?
Or is it toasted cheese that makes you drool? You love melty cheese oozing between two pieces of bread. (Not much oozing here – this is a low calorie, healthy cooking blog.)
While I like all varieties of sandwiches, panini sandwiches top my list.
I like the fact that I can have a toasted sandwich without all the added fat required to make a crusty sandwich in a pan on the stove. I just spray my panini grill with olive oil cooking spray and it’s ready to go.
This turkey panini gets a punch of flavor from a creamy feta sauce and roasted red peppers.
With all that tender turkey, cheesy sauce and crusty bread, even my peanut butter and jelly eating husband ate every last bite.
Happy, healthy cooking!
