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!

2. Mediterranean Turkey Hummus Panini

Roasted red peppers are a delicious panini topping and is made complete with hummus and turkey.

3. Turkey, Bacon and Guacamole Panini

This panini has all the good stuff and so much more. The best part is, it will fill you up quickly!

4. Cinnamon Toast Panini

Feeling a little more sweet than salty? This Cinnamon Toast Panini is filled with sweetness and can be topped off perfectly with a scoop of ice cream.

5. Spinach Artichoke Grilled Cheese

If you look at the ingredients for this panini, essentially what you’re eating is spinach dip in a sandwich. Boom.

6. Blueberry Basil and Goat Cheese

This simple combination of ingredients is a great way to achieve a gourmet taste in a hurry.

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.

8. Grilled Chicken Pesto Panini

Home made pesto is absolutely delicious, and packs your panini with all those flavors you love.

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.

10. Sweet Raspberry Panini

This panini calls to be served with a hot cup of coffee in the morning. Sweetness!
