Sometimes there are ingredients that are so simple standing alone, but when paired together create the most amazing blend of flavors. This chicken sausage and Brie panini was inspired by a sandwich at one of my favorite coffee shops on the upper west side. The creamy Brie balances out the peppery bite of the arugula while the chicken sausage adds a smoky flavor and depth to this simple panini. If you don’t have a panini press then you can use a heated skillet and press a pan down on top of the sandwich to soften the Brie.

Cook Time: 10 min


1 link sundried tomato and basil flavored chicken sausage
2 slices multi-grain bread

Slice the chicken sausage in half lengthwise and grill on the panini press for 4 minutes, or until cooked.

Remove the sausage and then assemble the sandwich by placing the slice of Brie on one side of the bread and topping it with the cooked sausage.

Top with the tomato and arugula then the second piece of bread.

Place the sandwich on the heated panini for 3 minutes until the Brie is softened.

Slice and serve warm.
