Treat your family to these hot sandwiches for a hearty lunch or casual supper. They can be on the table on 20 minutes.
large slices sourdough bread (1/2 inch thick)
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
oz smoky Cheddar cheese, sliced
cups shredded cooked chicken
cup cooked real bacon bits (from 3-oz jar)
thin slices tomato
thin slices onion, separated into rings
Heat panini maker or closed contact grill for 5 minutes. Spread 1 side of each bread slice with butter. On unbuttered side of 2 slices, arrange half of the cheese. Top evenly with chicken, bacon, tomato, onion and remaining cheese. Top with remaining 2 bread slices, buttered sides up.
Place sandwiches on grill. Close grill; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Cut each sandwich in half to serve.
Eight slices regular white bread can be substituted for the 4 large sourdough slices.
If you don’t have a panini maker or closed contact grill, you can cook the sandwiches in a 10-inch nonstick skillet. Heat the skillet over medium heat; cook sandwiches for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
