Along with the chilly fall air comes a taste for warm foods.  Paninis are great sandwiches - especially when the weather is cool.  We've found some delicious ones for you to try out.  If you don't have a panini maker you can use a toaster oven or just grill them on the stove.  Enjoy!

Mediterranean Turkey Hummus Panini
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 8 min
Total Time: 13 min 

4 slices of bread
4 Tablespoons Sabra Garlic Herb Hummus Spread
6 slices of smoked turkey
1 small tomato, thinly sliced
3 oz. roasted red peppers
2 handfuls of fresh spinach
4 slices of havarti cheese
3 oz. artichoke hearts, chopped {optional}

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Lay the butter side down on a cutting board. Spread 1 Tablespoon of the Sabra Garlic Herb Hummus Spread on the other side of each slice of bread {I squeezed it out to about 1 Tablespoon for each side instead of actually measuring it}.
Layer the havarti cheese, spinach, tomato, roasted red peppers, artichokes and smoked turkey on one side of the bread and close the sandwich using the other slice of bread.

Using a panini maker or a griddle toast each side of the sandwich for about 2-3 minutes, or until the bread becomes crispy and the cheese melts.
