This was delish. I used Recipe #307546 for the bread, and it went very well with this. The chewy sweet raisins in the bread complemented the chewy sun dried tomatoes, and gooey goodness of the brie, and the bite of the basil . . . oh, this was GOOD. :) I don't have a panini press, so I cut mine in half (so it would fit in my big non-stick skillet) and fried it with my heaviest pan on top to flatten it. Perfect! Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
