Lunch is defined by one singular emoji or word: Sandwich. Whether we eat them or not, we know sandwiches are for lunch time and can be made in a variety of ways. There’s one step up to the sandwich, though, and it’s filled with melted cheesy goodness and a whole lot of protein. Paninis have been around for a while, but I am bringing you ten of the most crave-able paninis I could find that will have your mouth watering for this very traditional lunch food.

1. Southwest Avocado Chicken Panini

If there’s one thing that always tastes perfect on a panini, it’s avocado. With a southwestern flare, this sandwich will not disappoint!

7. Bacon, Brie and Apricot Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Reduction

It’s at this point in the article where I feel it important to state that I am SO hungry. Also, there’s balsamic reduction in this which is the answer to everything that tastes good.

9. Turkey, Brie and Cranberry Mustard Panini

One of my favorite pairs for a panini is pairing a creamy cheese with cranberries. It creates the perfect flavor to go with turkey or chicken without being too overpowering.
