BLT Panini


There is nothing so yummy as a hot BLT Panini made on whole wheat bread.  Not to mention that it takes hardly any time to make these for the whole family. Serve with a vegetable tray and dip and you have a great dinner… or even a lunch!

Here is how I make mine BLT Panini:

2 slices of whole wheat bread, buttered on one side
2 slices of cheese
3 pieces of bacon
2 slices of lettuce
1 slice of tomato

Layer it this way for the best results: buttered bread, slice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, lettuce, cheese, buttered bread. Be sure that the butter is facing out, so the bread will not stick to the panini maker.

Slice in half and serve warm!

Bake at 250 degrees for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle chips on top of hot pan and let sit for 10 minutes or longer. With a spoon, spread the softened chocolate across the top of the pan. You could top these bars with nuts, coconut or dried fruit, as well as add these to the dry ingredients.

Cool completely, cut and store in air tight container.  This is a freezable recipe!
