Buffalo Chicken Sausage Panini

I was going to be a "chicken" and not post about this because I didn't like how the photos turned out. BUT this sandwich turned out SO GOOD I decided I had to share it with you. Please excuse my inept ability to photograph panini as beautifully as Panini Kathy! ;)

Yesterday I told you how Grumpy told me I couldn't cook chicken anymore? Well, I truly don't understand it. ;) Really! Everything I made, he ate and liked! Especially the Buffalo Chicken Sausage Paninis!

I was floundering again and hadn't a clue what I wanted to make. I went to my kitchen freezer and checked out the sausages. I had some Buffalo Chicken Sausages. Of course, I think of the Buffalo Chicken Panini I found on Panini Happy and how much I LOVED them. So, I pulled them out and cooked the sausages....to make Buffalo Chicken Sausage Panini!

When Grumpy walked in the house the first words out of his mouth were "what smells so good". HAHA. I will definitely buy these sausages again - and maybe make some sort of pasta dish with them!

Buffalo Chicken Sausage Panini

1 package Buffalo Chicken Sausage
Ken's Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing (If I had crumbly blue cheese - I would have used that, but this worked great too!)
Red Hot Sauce
Caramelized onions
Mozzarella Cheese
Ciabatta buns

Cook sausages until they are done. When cooled slightly, slice sausages in half, then in half again.

While sausages are cooking, heat butter in a large saute pan over medium heat and saute onions for 13 minutes until soft. Stir in some brown sugar and saute for another 10 minutes or until onions are caramelized. Set aside.

To assemble:
On ciabatta bun place in the following order:
  • caramelized onions,
  • blue cheese
  • chicken sausages
  • sprinkle red hot sauce to taste
  • mozzeralla cheese
  • top layer of bun
Place in panini press and cook! Delicious!
