Paninis made on fresh baguettes are some of the best sandwiches ever! This recipe is good for a light dinner or hearty lunch.


  • 1/2 oz fresh arugula or spinach (small handfull)
  • 1 oz goat cheese
  • 1 slice freshly made loaf of whole grain bread
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1/3 bosc or red pear, sliced


  • Slice your baguette into 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick slices. Freeze any slices you’re not going to use, they heat up great in the oven or toaster oven! Top one slice with goat cheese, pear slices, and drizzle the honey on top.
  • Top with arugula, season with salt and pepper.
  • Top with the second slice of bread, and grill in a panini press until the outside is crispy and golden brown.
