From Collegiate Cook, http://www.collegiatecook.com/2010/07/turkey-panini-straight-off-the-iron
2 slices of bread
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Your choice of meat and sandwich toppings
You'll also need:
A clothing iron, aluminum foil, towel or oven mitts
Make sure there's no water in your iron. Switch it to the cotton/linen setting.
Coat one side of each piece of bread with olive oil.
Place one slice of bread olive-oil-side-down on the foil. Sprinkle cheese, add toppings and sprinkle more cheese over the toppings. Add the other slice of bread on top, oiled side up.
Wrap the sandwich in foil. Press the iron atop one side for 30 to 40 seconds. Using your mitts or towel, pull back a corner to check if the bread is golden. If not, press the iron for an additional 15 to 20 seconds.
Once one side is golden, turn over the sandwich and press the other side. Remove foil once both sides are finished.

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted.
