Panini Taste-Test

I did it, I brought my lunch today! Well, at least 6 points of it. I may still head out for some soup or fruit or something light.

But with my lunch today, I believe I have now sampled all 4 flavors of the new Lean Cuisine panini sandwich line. My thoughts:

Chicken Club - this was the first one I tried and it's still my favorite. Those little bacon bits are tasty!

Southwest-Style Chicken - today's lunch. It was pretty tasty, I liked the combo of cheese and southwest spices. I'm not a fan of peppers, and it did have green peppers on it but they are not very strong in taste so it didn't bother me. I'm saying this is my 2nd place flavor.

Steak, Cheddar and Mushroom - this is a pretty decent sandwich. The "steak" is very processed though, in sort of rubbery-looking grayish cube form. Tastes good but not all that attractive. The cheese is tasty, and there's a hint of onion in there. This one gets the bronze.

Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom - this is the one that sounds the best, but I actually didn't like it that much. As I've mentioned before, I *hate* roasted red peppers. And this one is covered with them. The pepper taste was way too overpowering, so this is not the sandwich for me.

This helps, thanks! I've been waffling on what's for our gathering this weekend....the peppers....I'm still narrowing down what to make....I have the side, now I just need to figure out another and the main. THANKS!

Hee hee! I'm excited about our meal on Sunday. Don't worry, if there were to be peppers in it I would smile and say it's delicious anyway... but if I can have a non-roasted red pepper version, I'd be even happier! :-)
