yields 2 sandwiches
1 small loaf ciabatta bread
1/4 lb peppered turkey
1/2 of a green apple, thinly sliced

Spray your panini maker or grill pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat.  Half ciabatta loaf and then slice each half lengthwise.  Lightly drizzle the outside of the tops and bottoms of the ciabatta bread.  Top each bottom half with 1 1/2 tablespoons peach preserves.  Top each sandwich evenly with turkey, then apple slices, then brie and ciabatta top. Carefully lay sandwiches in grill pan and press firmly with another heavy pan for 2 minutes or until nice grill marks form and cheese begins to melt.  Flip each sandwich and press again with pan for another 2 minutes. Remove and place on a cutting board.  Slice crosswise.! :)
