Perfect Panini

I was trying to find something to use my Krups panini press on and remembered seeing Giada make these a time or two. The recipe doesn't state to use a panini press but it sure was good toasted anyways. I resisted the urge to slap a piece of cheese on it ... surprisingly, it didn't need it. It was nice and creamy as is and the pureed olives made a really nice combination. I wouldn't sub regular black olives ... the kalamatas were perfect for it.

I don't know why but I don't use my panini press often. It does great if you make a sandwich like this with a ciabatta or foccacia bun ... something that starts out thick and has room to squash. But, if you use if for a simple grilled cheese on sandwich bread it kind of destroys it.

Perfect is maybe a stretch but it was surprisingly really good. It would have been even better if I would have used a rosemary bread, I think.
