Rosie's Hot Pepper Spread with Goat Cheese Panini



From the Executive Kitchen at Stello Foods, Inc.

Ingredients:

4  thick slices Sourdough Bread
1/2 cup Rosie's Hot Pepper Spread (any other brand won't do)
2 tsp  Olive Oil
1/2 cup Sliced Green Olives
1/2 cup Sliced Goat Cheese
handful Fresh Baby Spinach Leaves
2 tbs  Softened Butter

Directions:

Spread the outsides of the bread with butter.  Spread two slices of bread with 3 to 4 tablespoons of Rosie's Hot Red Pepper Spread. Top with sliced green olives and baby spinach. Place the goat cheese slices on top.

Grill on a panini press, high heat, for about 10 minutes, checking periodically to make sure it doesn't burn.  You can also grill in a skillet or on a griddle.  Flatten the sandwiches with a heavy frying pan while in the skillet to get the panini effect.

Serves 2





Pepper Spread Story:

We all have a childhood memory of a special recipe that only Mom could make.  For Nickki Stello and his family and friends, "Rosie's Sweet Pepper Spread" was everyone's favorite.  Their grandparent's (Nick & Lucy Villella) recipe for ground peppers with oil in a special tomato sauce was passed on the the next generation.  That is why no other brand will do!
