Since then, our entire family has used it for various lunches and dinners.  However, I am not a big fan of sandwiches made with bread, as they tend to be heavy and filling.  I prefer to make wraps.  But just because I like wraps doesn’t mean that I want a cold sandwich.

My challenging requests for a sandwich led me to my creation of a wrap-panini.  Using flatbread, I could have a lighter outside for my sandwich, while cooking it with the panini pan produced a warm, gooey sandwich.  Plus, the wrap gets a light amount of crunch, which is a pleasing addition of texture.

Although the kids still prefer to make paninis with bread, I have converted my husband to the wrap-panini concept.  Many days of the week, he can be found one for his lunch.

    Wrap panini with chicken, gouda, and granny smith apple…! Very interesting 🙂 My favourite wrap is the chicken, basil pesto, avocado and salad in whole wheat lavash bread (not toasted). It’s surprisingly filling and the university cafe sells it!
    I definitely would love to try your recipe though! The granny smith apple with the gouda must taste very good with the chicken I’d imagine~ hmmm~
