Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce

Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce. A Panini Sandwich Recipe is loaded with all sorts of goodies, but the crowning jewel is the fresh creamy pesto. Learn how to make a panini properly and win an awesome Panini Press!

Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce

A friend once told me she found it hard to make a good panini sandwich. She explained that the inside sometimes came out soggy, or that by the time she had pressed the sandwich long enough to warm through the center, the outside was too dark.

This puzzled me, because a good panini press is meant to make life a little easier in the kitchen. After further discussion, we discovered that she was using cold, wet ingredients (like tomatoes and olives straight out of the tub) and had set the temperature on the grill too high. After a little adjustment, she now uses her panini press all the time for sandwiches, as well as fish and grilled veggies.

It’s amazing how one conversation, or piece of new information, can change your perspective.

Vibrant Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce

BigKitchen.com recently sent me a wonderful Calphalon Removable Plates Grill. Prior to this, my only hangup with panini presses and electric grills was how tricky they were to clean up. This one has certainly changed my perspective.

This Calphalon indoor grill is a cinch to clean. Both grill plates simply pop off and can even be placed in the dishwasher, along with the drawer in the back that catches grease and crumbs.

The top portion of the press is hinged to allow height adjustment for even cooking. That means you can place tall sandwiches, or thick-cut steaks in it without any difficulty. Also the preheat function is exceptionally fast. By the time you assemble your panini sandwich recipe, the grill is ready to go.

Amazing Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce

Today I’m serving a Panini Sandwich with Creamy Pesto Sauce. This pesto is a little different from the standard variety because it calls for less oil and is blended with cream cheese. The cream cheese provides a light silky quality and accentuates the basil, walnut and lemon. It’s easier to spread than regular pesto and makes a wonderful melty addition to any panini sandwich recipe.

How to make a Panini:

  • Preheat the grill
  • Butter the bread
  • Load with dry, room-temperature ingredients
  • Press to toast

That’s really all there is to it. I loaded these with black forest ham, genoa salami, artichoke hearts, sprouts and a good shmeer of creamy pesto. Heavenly!

Creamy Pesto Panini Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Creamy Pesto:

  • 2 cups basil, packed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 ounces cream cheese

For the Panini Sandwich Recipe:

  • 8 slices sour dough bread
  • softened butter
  • 16 slices black forest ham
  • 16 slices genoa salami
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and pulled apart
  • 1 cup alfalfa sprouts

Directions:

  1. Preheat a panini press to 300 degrees F. Add the ingredients for the creamy pesto to a food processor. Puree until smooth.
  2. Butter 8 slices of bread, then flip them over and spread the creamy pesto on the opposite side. Place 4 slices, butter side down, on the panini press. Layer each with 2 slices ham, a small handful of artichokes leaves, 2 slices salami and the other slice of bread. Close the panini press and grill for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Then remove the sandwiches, open them up and add a handful of alfalfa sprouts. Press them closed again, cut and serve warm.

It is seriously so pathetic! first thing i would make, hands down is a cubano….I just love these but my cooking method does not do justice! and to also grill fish??!

    I have a press now but a devil to clean because the plates don’t come out. I would make a crab salad panini with a spread made from roasted red pepper and hearts of palm and topped with a nice slice of fontina cheese. I grill the vegetables for the spread on the press too. I grew up eating grilled crab salad sandwiches with cheese at the local ice cream parlor and I decided that as an adult event though I have fond memories of the original I like my version even better.

    Thanks for letting us share! I just love the site.

    Laura

I have pesto in the freezer I made with basil from my garden last summer and this would be an EXCELLENT way to use it.

This is one of my husbands favorite sandwiches. Simple and delicious.

    Just came across your site through someone I’m following on Twitter. I would love to win this Panini press. Already thinking of the variety of panini sandwiches I would make. I bought a cheap one ($10) last year when I first got into making paninis. It’s not great as the one you mentioned above.

    My favorite so far is with sauteed and seasoned spinach, onions, pine nuts with feta cheese inside naan. I love hearing the cheese sizzle and then when I open up the press I to see the grilled lines. Oooh, getting excited about paninis just thinking about that.

    If I win the professional one, I can make more than one panini at a time and make a variety without waiting too much time.

    As a fitness competitor and a loyal foodie (what a combination huh?) the question is, what wouldn’t I make in this grill! I would make of course yummy paninis, grilled chicken, and quesadillas so far come to mind. I just subscribed to your facebook page! Amazing!

    What a great giveaway! And I love the idea of putting cream cheese in the pesto – I bet it makes it creamy and delicious! This panini maker looks fab – the removable plates definitely make it. I would definitely make paninis on it (my favorite is fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and pesto) but I would also love to experiment with cooking chicken and other meat on it.

    I’ve always wanted to own a high quality grill. Caphalon counter top grill looks sleek and i trust the quality as well. If I win this grill, I would prepare spicy and flavorful ‘Chapli Kebabs’. Also, grill vegetables,bread,burgers,sandwiches. This will be great summer gift for us. Thanks for hosting this giveaway and the recipe for a flavorful panini.

    I would LOVE a panini grill! I love them, but only get to have them rarely, since making them w/o the press is hard. I used to work in a cafe (closed now) and we made turkey, pesto, roasted red pepper and swiss. To die for! I would love to have it again!
