“I recently got a new grill pan with a panini press and I couldn't wait to try it out. I wasn't fond of the recipe that came with the pan, which called for mayonnaise, of which I am not a fan. Instead I came up with this recipe, based on our personal taste preferences. The "citrus and Dijon seasoning" I use is Pampered Chef's Citrus and Dijon Rub. If you don't have Bacon Salt in your pantry, get it! It is awesome for imparting bacon FLAVOR without the bacon FAT!”
