“In 'Panini' by Melanie Barnard”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices cinnamon-swirl bread (each about 1/2 inch thick) or 4 slices walnut bread (each about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter or 4 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons jam (your favorite) or 2 tablespoons preserves (your favorite)


  1. Preheat the sandwich grill.
  2. Place bread slices on a work surface and spread 1 side of each with the butter.
  3. Turn and spread the unbuttered sides with the peanut butter, dividing it evenly, then spread the jam over the peanut butter on 2 of the slices.
  4. Place the remaining 2 bread slices on top, peanut butter sides down, and press gently to pack.
  5. Place the panini in the grill, close the top plate, and cook until the bread is golden and toasted and the peanut butter is warmed and beginning to melt, 2-4 minutes.
  6. Cut each sandwich in half and serve immediately.
