Breakfast Panini with Strawberries

Well I've been in love with these blueberry paninis I posted last month, and today decided to try using minced strawberries instead of blueberries.  The blueberries aren't in season anymore, so rather than spend $5 for a small container, I spent $2.50 for a bin of strawberries.  One of my favorite guilty pleasures is a strawberry cream cheese danish, so I knew the flavors would work!  Sure enough, they did, even if this recipe is definitely messier than the blueberry one.  Fair warning. ;-)

Ingredients (for each panini)
  • 1 oz of cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
  • 2 large strawberries, minced
  • 2 slices of bread
  • Butter

  1. Heat panini press or large pan.
  2. Microwave cream cheese for 10 seconds to soften.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, sugar, and strawberries.
  4. Butter outside of both slices of bread.
  5. Spoon strawberry filling into sandwich.
  6. Grill on panini press or in a pan for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
