Grilled Chicken and Pepperoni Panini – copycat recipe from Edgar’s Bakery. Sourdough bread, butter, garlic, pepperoni, mozzarella, sliced chicken or turkey deli meat. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping. SO good!!!
August is Panini month! One of my favorite panini’s comes from a local bakery called Edgar’s. In addition to wonderful sandwiches, Edgar’s has the best strawberry cake – EVER! I always get an Edgar’s strawberry cupcake for my birthday.
My panini of choice at Edgar’s is the Marilyn Monroe. Edgar’s describes it as “Hot steaming sliced breast of chicken with pepperoni and melted mozzarella cheese on toasted cheddar bread with marinara dipping sauce.” I describe it as “YUM”. How could I not love this sandwich?! It combines my love of chicken and pizza.
I decided to make an at-home version. I don’t own a panini press, but I do have a grill press. I used the grill press to press down the sandwiches in my grill pan. They turned out great!! We both loved the sandwich. I might even say that my version was better than the original!
