Fig & Goat Cheese Panini Recipe

Just a quick "HI" from Seattle!

I'm having a good time hanging out with my family and friends, dancing, eating, making a few jewelry projects for my mom and sleeping in.

Since many of you liked my "recipe" for Fig salad with goat cheese, arugula and pickled onions, here's another idea for what to do with the same ingredient PLUS French baguette: Fig & Goat Cheese Baguette.

This is an incredibly quick sandwich to make and it's portable: in fact, I packed it on my flight to Seattle! It was so much better than the food I could have purchased at the DCA.

Ingredients
French baguette, sliced lenghtwise
goat cheese
figs, sliced
arugula
pickled onions
best balsamic vinegar you can get, reduced till it's syrupy




Directions
1. Slightly grill French baguette on your panini maker. If you don't have one, just use a skillet or a toaster.
2. Build your sandwich: bread, cheese, figs, arugula, onions, balsamic reduction, bread. 
3. Using a panini grill, grill the sandwich for about 5 minutes. Cut in half. Eat or pack for later. 




When you travel, what food do you pack with you? I'm talking more about a meal and not snacks. Please share: maybe I'll use your ideas on my flight back from Seattle to DC!

Great looking sandwich Olga but what's not to love with those ingredients. Have fun in Seattle!

Mmm... that sounds like an excellent panini. I would like this even more than salad simply because I LOVE bread!

I love this, I just started my blog and my first post was about figs, aren't the beautiful models? I've never had them on a sandwich before, but this looks divine.

I bet those pickled onions really put this sandwich over the top - the flavors sound terrific!
