Ham, Brie, and Arugula Panini

Ham, Brie, and Arugula Panini


Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!  I hope that you and your loved ones are looking forward to a day of love.  Marc and I do usually go out, but we don’t go to one of Boston’s fancier restaurants, as we don’t usually want to get roped in to the high prices and unrealistic reservation times.  Tomorrow, we plan on going to a lesser-known Szechuan restaurant in Woburn after work, and getting some unusual and spicy.  Sounds like a great night to me!

Tonight, I threw together this wonderful panini, which took me all of 15 minutes to make as soon as I got home from work.  We paired it with a fruit salad and a tiny, semi-weird pasta salad from our neighborhood market.  I would love to make this again.


Ham, Brie, and Arugula Panini

  • 4 slices good quality bread (we used whole wheat Tuscan Pane)
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 4 slices good quality deli ham
  • Brie, sliced and rinds removed
  • Small handful argula


  1. Caramelize onion until brown and soft.  Set aside.
  2. Lay brie out on bread, making sure that brie is on both slices.  Layer caramelized onion, and ham on one side.  Top with arugula and other piece of bread.
  3. Put assembled sandwich on preheated panini press, and cover press.  Allow sandwiches to cook for 5-7 minutes.  When you feel that sandwich is warmed through, remove from press and slice.  ENJOY!
