Birthday Panini!

For Donald's birthday, which was the 4th of July, I made him corned beef paninis to take on a picnic in the local park. It was a gorgeous day, and the corned beef was fresh and great. They're simple but good. I had to take the pic while they were still on the grill, but you get the idea!

Corned Beef Panini for a picnic

1/2 lb corned beef, shaved thin
1c sauerkraut
Thousand island dressing
8 pieces Italian bread, sliced moderately thin
Fat Free butter (I can't believe its not butter makes a good one, but don't eat it on bread, just use it for cooking)
- Makes 4 sandwiches
  1. Butter one side of each piece of bread, place buttered side down on George Foreman grill.
  2. Place 2-3 slices of corned beef on the bread and then 1/8 to 1/4 cup sauerkraut to taste.
  3. Place other piece of bread on top, butter side up, and lower the lid of the grill. NOTE: If serving immediately, add the thousand island dressing before grilling.
  4. Once heated through, wrap in foil to keep warm. They will stay warm for 20-30 minutes like this.
  5. Add thousand island dressing just before eating, if necessary.
