Panini Happy!

So, it would be an understatement to say that we are obsessed with bread...and we are constantly thinking up new ways to eat our breads. With that said, sometimes we need a little help.

We want to share a great blog with you that consistently has fresh ideas and recipes all revolving around good-quality bread. Panini Happy is not only an extensive database of panini recipes, but it is extremely organized. You can navigate the site based on what kind of panini you are in the mood for/what ingredients you have in your home. The main navigation bar lets you choose between beef or chicken paninis, breakfast or dessert paninis and even vegetarian and seafood paninis. Here is one of our favorite "Panini Happy" recipes for summer:

Chicken-Grape Salad & Gruyère Panini

(Note: The quantity of each ingredient in the chicken salad is completely up to your personal taste.)

Chicken, cooked and shredded
Grapes, halved
Walnuts, chopped
Salt and pepper
Gruyère cheese, shaved or sliced
Dark rye bread


Preheat the panini grill to medium-high heat (375 degrees).

In a small bowl, combine chicken, grapes, walnuts, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.

For each sandwich: Spread about 1 cup of chicken salad onto a slice of bread. Add cheese and top with another slice of bread. Grill about 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is crispy, with grill marks. Serve immediately and enjoy!
