Great sandwich and easy to make. My 92 year old grandmother who doesn't believe in "fancy" cooking loved it. I used feta instead of Roquefort since I had that (plus it's cheaper) and it worked great.
Excellent combination of flavors. I used leftover "High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast", thinly sliced. Other than that, I made no changes to the recipe. Next time, I will try it with onions instead of shallots, and I will add a little more horseradish to the sauce. The sauce was tasty, but very mild. Thanks for the idea!
I used blue cheese (it's what I had on hand) instead of roquefort. if you do the same, do reduce the amount, as it will overpower the mildness of the shallots just a little. I used shallots because I had some, but I certainly wouldn't hesitate to use onions if that's all I had. I didn't have any heavy cream, so I just mixed up a sour cream-horseradish sauce which worked well as a sub. I think some sauteed mushrooms would be a good addition to this sandwich. Very nice panini.
Pretty good. I liked this concept. My horseradish cream did not come out very strong. Not sure why, I used fresh horseradish root and grated it. The panini did not get as crisp and marked as I hoped, my first time using the panini press. The taste was very good however. Next time will use a less crusty bread. (the bakery suggested I use one with a lot of cunchy exterior for my panini, which I ended up not liking).
I made this at a tailgate on a grill using a cast iron grill and pressed it down with a brick wrapped in foil....I decided to substitute provolone cheese but it was outstanding. Rave reviews from my group.
