Bacon & Blue Cheese Panini

1/3 of a ciabatta loaf
3 slices oven-roasted turkey
2 slices bacon, cooked
1/4 granny smith apple, sliced thinly
1-2 tablespoons blue cheese
Plus oil or butter, for grilling (cooking spray would work as well)

Slice ciabatta horizontally. Add turkey, bacon, apple slices, and blue cheese to the bread. Top sandwich with other slice of bread, then toast in a grill pan or panini press. (Either coat pan with oil or top bread with softened butter for a better crisp).

If using a grill pan, toast sandwich on medium heat for about five minutes on each side. For a truly pressed panini, top sandwich with a heavy object (such as a dense pan or container of utensils) to press it.
