Recently, a friend and I got together. I made lunch for our marathon session of watching Psych. We had Blueberry Balsamic Brie Grilled Paninis for our main course. I usually make this with Spinach but I forgot to get some at the store. To drink, I made Mango Limeade.
For dessert, I made Chocolate Hazelnut Mouse with Hazelnut Brittle
We decided to have another Pysch marathon today. I got to thinking about those blueberry balsamic brie grilled paninis and wondered how I could change it up. I had just bought some organic strawberries from Whole Foods over the weekend. So I’m thinking Strawberry and Cheese Panini. Then all of a sudden, it pops into my head, add chocolate. And the Roasted Strawberry Cheddar and Chocolate Grilled Panini was born. Since this was both savory and sweet, it satisfied both main course and dessert.
Roasted Strawberry, Cheddar and Chocolate Grilled Panini
Yields: 2 sandwiches
6 strawberries, quartered
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt
4 slices gluten free bread
2-3 ounces of grass fed raw cheddar cheese, sliced
1-2 ounces high-quality chocolate
Panini Maker (I have the Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss strawberries with oil and salt, then spread on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
Pre-heat panini maker. Layer on a few slices of cheese, strawberries and chocolate onto slice of bread. Top with a few more slices of cheese, if desired. Place another piece of bread on top. Place in panini maker until desired goldenness.
