Croissant Panini for IHCC

It's our last month cooking with Giada de Laurentiis at I Heart Cooking clubs, though i've been missing out on the fun the last couple of months. I am back again this week. Can't waith to hear who whe will be cooking up the next six months, because it's voting time. I hope it will be Jamie...

4 croissants, sliced in 1/2 lengthwise
4 ounces smoked Gouda, grated (about 1 1/3 cups)
8 teaspoons grated Parmesan
4 ounces Genoa salami (about 24 slices)
5 ounces arugula

Heat a panini grill. Divide 1-ounce (1/3 cup) smoked Gouda between 1 top and 1 bottom of a croissant. Sprinkle each half with 1 teaspoon Parmesan. Top each side with about 3 slices of Genoa salami (about 1 ounce of salami per sandwich, total.) Top 1 half of the sandwich with a small handful of arugula. Close the sandwich and continue with the remaining sandwiches. Grill the panini until the cheese melts, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Cut each sandwich into thirds. Place the remaining arugula on a serving platter. Place the warm sandwich slices on the arugula. Serve hot.

  1. Mmm, those look so inviting! I wish I could reach in and grab a couple for lunch. ☺

  2. These looks wonderful. I am just learning to use my George Foreman grill as a panini press, and I love croissants, so this would be a great one to add to my list!

  3. This is such a great idea...I've never think of using croissants. Totally want to try this now.

  4. A croissant panini sounds so decadent and wonderful. Your picture has me sold on these. They look terrific.

    Jamie is a great choice. I've really been enjoying his website over the past few days.

  5. These look delicious with the salami and the smoked Gouda--a great pick! ;-)
