The bacon, apple and tarragon in this recipe go together so well. If you don’t have a panini maker or an indoor grill, you can easily pan-fry or broil these excellent sandwiches.—Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2012

This sandwich was so delicious. I don't use tarragon a lot, so was a little sceptical on how it would all come together. It is just a lovely combination of flavors. I do not have a panini press, so I just used my George Foreman grill, worked just as good.
