I "stuck" this recipe in my cookbook here on Recipezaar, then was surprised to see the paninis served at our neighborhood Bunco group. They were such a big hit and SO delicious. Everyone loved them. She said she might use more of the red pepper jelly next time, and I couldn't identify it in the sandwich, so I would agree. The warm strawberries added just a hint of sweetness that was perfect. If you want to impress, this is a recipe to guarantee it!
