Panera Bread Recipe Ingredients:
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for skillet
- 8 slices Panera Stone-Milled Rye about 1/2" thick
- 1/2 cup pumpkin butter
- 1/2 pound Camembert cheese, thickly sliced
- 1 bunch fresh basil leaves, washed
Panera Bread Recipe Instructions:
First of all spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter on a slice of bread, then spoon 1 tablespoon of pumpkin butter on top and spread to edges. Lay 2 to 3 thick slices of Camembert over pumpkin butter. Place 2 to 3 basil leaves on top of cheese. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter on another slice of rye bread. Lay on top of the basil and press, buttered-side down, into the sandwich. Repeat with remaining sandwich ingredients to create 4 whole sandwiches.
Next heat a cast-iron or other heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and let it melt to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Put the sandwiches in the pan and toast for 2 to 3 minutes until the bread becomes golden and cheese begins to melt. Turn the sandwiches over and toast until golden and cheese is bubbly. Cut the sandwiches in half before serving. Serve 4 persons ! Enjoy the panera bread !
