Press On

My newest kitchen gadget is a panini press that I got for Christmas. This handy machine has made me a master of the leftover makeover. For lunch I have been chopping up leftover meats and veggies and tucking them into a tortilla with a smattering of Dijon mustard and a slice of cheese. A few minutes in the panini press gives me a yummy, oooey, gooey, hot sandwich. Any of you have a favorite recipe that utilizes a panini press?

I don't have a panini press, but I use my waffle iron! A tortilla just fits on it. I put cheese, mushrooms, black beans, broccoli, or (as you say) leftovers of all kinds between two tortillas and close the waffle iron on them. It has the added benefit of pressing them into quarters, easy to cut and easy to eat. :)
