"Very good for time restriction as a non- breakfast sandwich but omitting the eggs. Upgrade from plain sliced white bread"

"This sandwich was delicious! Thanks for the recipe:) To all of you negative Nellie's ~ how about lightening up? We can read the nutritional too and are capable of making up our own minds."

"I don't have a panini maker or an indoor grill but I have a clay plate that I bought in Mexico and put in in the oven on broil, low at first then on high, had to watch it though so the bread wouldn't burn. Was very good. I aslo substituted a slice of havarti cheese for the Brie and I also didn't have any baby spinach. Still good just the same."
