Greek-Style Panini

Tonight's dinner took 8 minutes to make, and that includes preheating the Griddler. I used some block feta cheese crumbled up and I used fresh baby spinach instead of frozen spinach. We liked this. It was very simple and yummy. We would make this again.

Oh! And I forgot to mention that last week I sent a surprise shipment of Snickerdoodles to Oregon, and they reportedly arrived intact and tasty. Hooray!


Greek-Style Panini

1. Combine spinach and feta cheese in bowl. Spread 1/3 cup mixture over bottom half of each rolls, and top with red pepper strip. Spread hummus on top halves of rolls.
