Wild Mushroom Melt Panini

I never need much of an excuse to make grilled cheese, but a rainy day is about as perfect an excuse as you’re gonna get. The sky just opened up outside the coffee shop where I’m sitting right now. This is newsworthy stuff in San Diego.

I surprised even myself when I first decided to make these Wild Mushroom Melt Panini. Me, the one who is more commonly known to remove mushrooms from dishes. I’ll say this, though. In my experience, there aren’t many foods that can’t be remarkably enhanced by sautéing them in olive oil and butter with garlic and shallots and finishing them with some balsamic vinegar. Mushrooms, it turns out, are no exception.

A mouth-watering meal perfect for the fall season! I love using Shiitake mushrooms in my sandwiches. Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a perfect pairing with our Fresh Mushroom and Squash Bisque | http://ow.ly/eqmnG

This sounds FANTASTIC!

That truly looks amazing and very easy to make. I must say I already made a wild mushroom mix to put on toast so why indeed not put it in between two layers of bread and add some cheese.
Life can be so simple sometimes 🙂

The rain was SO great, wasn’t it? And yep. This panino is perfect for such weather. I would be the last person on the planet to pick a mushroom from any dish. Awesome combo here, Kathy!

It’s a rainy day here today too and I would just love to have this sandwich on my table for lunch. Mushrooms are so good when they’re sauteed with shallots, and of course adding cheese just makes it even better!
