Chicken Cordon Blue Panini

Last year, I snagged a grill/panini press for a phenomenal $40.00. We have not pulled it out for a few months. I was surprised to hear Mason request a grilled sandwich for lunch a week ago. Since then, we have been heating up ham and turkey sandwiches everyday now. The adults, however, have had a little more fun with our panini sandwiches. I wanted to try using a couple of items I typically have on hand; english muffins and feta cheese. Feta and blue cheese are usually interchangeable and proved to be a nice substitute. Pair it up with some homemade sweet potato chips.

4 Soft sandwich rolls
1 1/3 cups chopped white meat rotisserie chicken
4 deli slices ham
3/4 cup crumbled clue cheese
1/2 cup ranch dressing

Preheat panini press. Place the roll bottoms on a work surface and top with the chicken and ham.
In a small bowl, mix the cheese and ranch dressing and spread on the roll top. Sandwich the two together and place in the panini press. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Serve with cut veggie sticks.

Variations:
Replace ham with crumbled bacon.
Use feta or Gorgonzola cheese.
