Brie, Nectarine and Arugula Panini

One of my favorite quick summer dinners to make is a panini. It takes a few minutes to assemble, and even less time to cook. This panini takes advantage of sweet summer nectarines which pair well with brie and arugula. Feel free to add chicken to take it up a notch.

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • One loaf levain or other crusty bread, thick sliced
  • ounces  Brie, room temperature
  • 1 -2 ripe nectarines, firm, thinly sliced
  • tablespoons  honey
  • cup  baby arugula leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Seeded mustard


  • Preheat Panini grill or grill pan. Take 4 slices of the bread and line them up on a sheet pan. Brush one side of each slice with olive oil. Place the slices olive oil side down on the sheet pan. On 4 of the bread slices, spread with some mustard. Layer with Brie and the nectarine. Make sure to layer each slice of bread evenly. Drizzle with honey, top with arugula. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the other 4 bread slices on top to make 4 sandwiches. Brush more oil on each of the 4 top bread slices. Place the sandwiches, 2 at a time, on the Panini grill. If you’re using a grill pan, place the sandwiches in the grill pan (2 at a time) and place a heavier pan on top of the sandwiches to press them down.
  • Cook until the sandwiches are toasty golden brown and the cheese is ooey gooey and melted, about 3-5 minutes.
