I'm all about cooking new things, but I'm also all about using up leftovers in a creative way. Reheated leftovers, as they are, are boring, and when it comes to food, boring just doesn't work around here.
A panini is a great way to bring leftovers together in a new wrapper, especially when the beautiful lemon and herb olive loaf I made is the wrapper.
This one was a three ingredient delight. Sliced smoked sausage, pan seared for a light caramel crust, thick sliced avocado, and a good dose of my fromage fort.
I think, without question, fromage fort is about the most versatile thing I have made in recent memory. I have used it to make pasta sauce, eggs benedict, on pizza, in French onion soup, in scrambled eggs, and in/on about 15 other dishes. I love the stuff. I would say I have a fromage fort addiction!
This panini was quick, delicious, and made respectable use of my leftovers.
Happy hump day, friends!
