Enjoy these Cheesy Beef Panini for lunch or dinner. This easy grilled cheese sandwich is loaded with goodness and will have everyone wanting more.
We have added a new member to our family. Now before you start thinking we have a new baby or puppy, let me set you straight. We bought a panini press. And it has been love at first use.
Honestly, I think someone has made a sandwich on it every day for the past week. My oldest even told me he was kidnapping the machine when the time comes for him to move out. I think it is safe to say this new Griddler is going to get lots of use in the next few years.
Another thing I'm thinking is thank goodness for a machine that is so easy to use that our kids can make their own BBQ Chicken & Avocado Quesadillas for lunch this summer.
I decided to make a roast beef sandwich and add some peppers and onions to it. First though, I spread the outside of the bread with a garlic spread that I had found at our grocery store.
If you can't find that particular spread, it is just a blend of olive oil, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Or you could also use a garlic mayo in place of the spread.
Adding the beef and roasted peppers and onions turned the classic grilled cheese into an amazing gourmet sandwich.
How to make a Cheesy Beef Panini
- Spread one side of each slice of bread with a garlic spread. (full recipe at bottom of post)
- Place the spread side of the butter down on the heated panini.
- Add three slices of beef, some roasted peppers and onions, and two slices of cheese. Top with another slice of bread, spread side up.
- Close the panini maker and cook until the cheese is melted and the bread is brown on each side.
- Serve immediately.
If you do not have a panini press available, you can also use a griddle or a pan on the stove to grill this Philly cheese steak sandwich to perfection.
Look at all that goodness inside this grilled cheese sandwich. Who can turn down a sandwich loaded with meat, melty cheese, peppers, and garlic?
I think it's time to get my sandwich love on again for lunch and dinner today. My family shouldn't have a problem with that...I hope.
At least it's better than cold cereal for dinner, right?
