I sent my spouse out to buy bread one day, and he came back with some Panini rolls. I don't remember why. But I decided to throw together a bunch of good stuff on the free George Foreman grill we inherited from a friend, so here goes:

Grilled Cheese and Vegetable Panini
1 panini roll: 0.50
1/2 oz. mozzarella cheese, sliced: 0.08
1/2 oz. cheddar cheese, sliced: 0.09
1 small jarred roasted pepper, sliced: 0.25
a few slices of onion: 0.05
1 tsp oil: 0.01
1 sun-dried tomato half, sliced: 0.03
2 T. mayo: 0.20
sprinkle of dried basil
handful of spinach: 0.20
Total: $1.41 for one sandwich, which is pretty cheap compared to what you'd pay if you bought it out.

Saute the onion in oil until soft and browning (optional).

Spread mayo on each side of the roll. Add basil. Layer the ingredients: dried tomato and pepper, mozzarella, spinach, cheddar, onion (separating the cheese makes it all stick together without needing a ton of cheese).

Heat up the grill, place on pan, and grill 3-4 minutes.
