What do you think about catalogs? I think some are like little dream books. For instance, I find just about everything in the Pottery Barn catalog to be super dreamy for my house, the Nordstrom catalog is dreamy for all things fashion, and then there's the Williams-Sonoma catalog. The little book of all things dreamy for the kitchen.
I received my dreamy kitchen book just the other day, and as I sipped some coffee and joyfully perused it, I stubbled upon some lovely recipes! That's where today's recipe is from in fact, the Croque Monsieur Panini.
I hadn't planned on continuing last week's French food theme into this week, but it just so happens that I am thanks to Williams-Sonoma. In case le Coq au Vin and the Creme Brulee weren't enough for you, now you have a yummy French sandwich too. You may also recall that back in April, I made Rach's Croque Madame. Today, you get the masculine version of that meal...which means it's eggless. Those funny French!
In the little dream book, this recipe is prepared on a panini press. Yes, that would indeed be dreamy! However, I don't own one, so I improvised with what I deemed the next best thing...the George Foreman grill. It isn't dreamy like the panini press, but it was effective enough and fast!
If you find yourself in a lunch or dinner rut, these "paninis" are OH SO GOOD!! Enjoy!!
