Toast up these panini that are full of rich and rustic flavors from Sargento® Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese and a hearty helping of roasted vegetables. You'll also enjoy a topping of delicious olive tapenade between slices of pumpernickel that takes the taste of this dish to the next level.

Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil or softened butter
  • 4 large slices pumpernickel, marble rye or multi-grain bread
  • 8 slices Sargento® Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups deli or take out grilled or roasted vegetables* such as bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini squash and asparagus spears
  • 1/4 cup bottled olive tapenade or olive and sun-dried tomato relish
Directions
  1. Brush oil or spread butter over one side of bread slices. Turn bread over; layer 2 slices cheese over each slice of bread. Top 2 of the slices with vegetables, cutting any large vegetables to fit as needed. Spread tapenade over the cheese on the other 2 slices of bread. Close sandwiches.
  2. Cook sandwiches in a preheated panini maker or lightly greased waffle iron until golden brown and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes. (Or, sandwiches may be cooked in a preheated ridged grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Place a skillet or saucepan on top of sandwiches to flatten; cook 3 minutes. Turn sandwiches; replace skillet or saucepan and continue to cook 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.)
