An elegant dinner for two just wouldn’t be the same without butter. Or really any dinner for that matter.
When I first considered what food to choose for “Q”, the only thing that came to mind at first was “Quail”…. hmm….
Never in my life have I woken up and thought, “Hm, I think I’ll make quail for dinner today.”
Think about your last trip to the supermarket. Did you see quail in the butcher case? Did you even think to look? I didn’t.
That is why, Q is NOT for Quail.
Q is for QUINOA!!!
This recipe was inspired by a panini I saw on the menu of an L.A. bakery…
It was made with Brie & Pears, and while they divulged very little about the rest of the sandwich, it looked DELICIOUS!
When I set out to create some Nectarine recipes, this sandwich came to mind…. I’m so glad I tried it… this panini is to die for.
You want to make this. Oh my, do you want to make this!
Ever since I made these I’ve been lying awake at night thinking about the different things I could stuff a panini with and how delicious it’s going to taste.
Is that normal?
I hope your answer is yes.
This sandwich truly does melt in your mouth. The buttery, toasted bread gives you just enough crunch to balance out the creamy brie and nectarine filling inside. THe peppery arugula and the drizzle of balsamic give it that final punch that really knock this panini’s flavor out of the park.
It’s beautiful, decadent, and divine.
How many you make and who you make it for is entirely up to you. But make it soon! This is not something you want to put off.
It is nothing like dusting your ceiling fans or organizing that front closet. This recipe was made to be enjoyed TODAY!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe…
I use it for lunch quite often for my girls, and you can cut any shape you want out of the bread so I mix it up and make “Egg-in-a-star”… “Egg-in-a-flower”… “Egg-in-a-heart”… You get the idea 🙂
Here’s everything you need for one serving:
1 slice of bread (any kind will do), 1 egg (not beaten), butter for greasing the pan, a cookie cutter, and salt & pepper.
Let’s just start off with the cost… only 43 cents for 1 serving! WOOHOO! Sold.
