Grilled Skirt Steak Panini with Blue Cheese

Russ Myers


As odd as it sounds I place grilled cheese in the same category as omelets. Why- well they both happen to be exceptionally versatile. You can put anything your heart desires in them and they always taste wonderful. So if you’re a roast beef and blue cheese lover you’re in for a treat with this one. If not, what’s your favorite grilled cheese combo?
