Via Quadronno Panini

  • Yield: 4 sandwiches


  • 1 loaf Ciabatta bread sliced into 4 (3-inch thick) slices (can be substituted with crusty
  • Italian bread)
  • 1/4 cup pate
  • 8 ounces Brie cheese, sliced into 8 pieces
  • 1/4 pound speck (or prosciutto), sliced paper-thin


  • Cut each 3-inch slice of Ciabatta horizontally to make a top and a bottom piece. Toast the bread in a toaster oven or a sandwich press, for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove the bread from the oven and spread each side with some of the pate. Place a slice of Brie cheese on each side. On one side, place 1/4 of the speck on top of the Brie cheese. Place in the toaster oven for 4 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt. Remove from the oven and place the piece of bread with only the pate and Brie on top of the piece with the speck. Press together. Slice the panini in half. Repeat this process for each sandwich.
