Panini’s are an easy way to make simple sandwiches taste much better. If you have the storage space and the 20 to 25 dollars to dish out I would consider investing in a griddle.
If you don’t have one that is just fine, a medium sized saucepan will do the trick. Begin by coating the pan with a little butter, (half a tablespoon will do the trick) and turning the heat to medium-high.
Begin by spreading half a mashed avocado on one piece of whole-wheat bread and then place the avocado-less side on the pan and place the fillings on top of the mashed avocado in order. This will help to keep the spinach in place:
- 1 sliced mushroom
- 1 small handful of spinach
- 1/2 chopped green onion
- 1 slice of cheddar cheese
Place the second piece of bread on top and let the pan or griddle work its magic for about 2 to 3 minutes (this could be longer depending on your stovetop). Once you see that the cheese has started to melt and the side that has been directly on the pan is lightly browned, flip the sandwich so that the other side gets the same heat exposure.
Serve with carrot sticks and enjoy!
