spanakopita panini

in my post yesterday i talked about all of the leftover spanakopita dip i had from kim's bridal shower. i combined other greek-like ingredients to turn this leftover into a simple and easy spanakopita panini. the dip acted as the "glue" so i didn't need to add any cheese. the final product was pretty delicious - the dip melted into a creamy, savory mess that gave the rest of the ingredients tons of flavor. you can use any kind of bread you like, but i used the 100-calorie sandwich thins...bikini season is coming up after all.

100 calorie sandwich thins
grilled chicken breasts, cooked (i used the really thin kind)
roasted red peppers
spanakopita dip

preheat panini press. slather each side of bread/sandwich thins with a generous amount of spanakopita dip. season both sides with s&p. top one piece of bread with roasted red peppers, mushrooms and then chicken. top with remaining piece of bread and cook 5-7 minutes on panini press, until bread is crunchy and dip has melted. serve immediately.
