Sticky Turkey and Brie Panini


I found these fabulous sourdough ciabatta rolls at Fresh Market and had to make a panini with them. There is nothing like a hot, pressed sandwich with gooey melted cheese oozing out! The sweet hot chile glaze (found at specialty kitchen stores) gives the panini a sticky and spicy bite! This sandwich comes together in a flash, and is very filling.

Sticky Turkey and Brie Panini


  • 1 ciabatta roll
  • 2 tsp. Sweet Hot Chile Glaze
  • 4 slices Brie
  • 4 slices deli turkey
  • 4 slices Roma tomato
  • 8 leaves fresh spinach
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat a panini pan over medium high heat, add olive oil to coat (A panini pan is just a glorified skillet with heavy lid — if you don’t have one, just use a non-stick skillet and something heavy to press sandwich down).
  2. Split ciabatta roll and spread 1 tsp. of Sweet Hot Chile Glaze on each slice of bread. Place 2 slices of Brie on each slice of bread. Pile turkey, tomato slices and spinach on one piece of bread, top with other slice of bread.
  3. Place sandwich in hot pan, press down with lid. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until bread becomes crispy and cheese begins to melt.
  4. Flip, and press down lid again. Cook for another three minutes, or until cheese is good and melted.
  5. Remove from skillet, slice in half and dig in!!
