French Dip Onion Ring Paninis

Shirley made us French Dip sandwiches for lunch after we finished setting up Joe’s elk camp over Halloween weekend. We were wet and cold and they hit the spot! She puts sour cream on them, which was new to me and told us they also like to pile onion rings on the sandwiches. Ever since she told me that, I’ve been meaning to make a French Dip Onion Ring Panini … we finally got around to it on Monday night and they were delicious! Thanks Shirley for the inspiration!

French Dip Onion Ring Paninis

Sourdough Bread
Sour Cream
Roast Beef
Queso Fresco (or your favorite cheese)
Frozen Onion Rings

Au Jus, for dipping

Cook the onion rings according to package directions (about 14 minutes in the oven). Spread a little sour cream on one piece of bread. Pile it high with roast beef, your favorite cheese and top with onion rings. Put the other piece of bread on top to make a sandwich, butter each side and grill in a Panini press for about three minutes.

Slice in half and serve with hot au jus for dipping.
