Side Suggestions: Provolone Paninis
For each person, place 2 slices of provolone cheese between 2 slices of whole wheat bread. Cook in a panini press. If you don’t have a panini press, place non-stick grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add sandwiches to the pan and then place a plate with a canned food item or other weight on top. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side.
