Easy Peasy Panini

Confession: I don't really have a panini press, but I'm really good at faking it. What I do have is a George Foreman grill and it works perfectly! My children appreciate the variety it gives us with grilled cheese and sandwiches, and I like a nice warm lunch this time of year too. You could also serve one-half of these sandwiches with a cup of Orzo Chicken Soup for a quick dinner. It would be a match made in heaven. I promise!
