I looked high and low for brioche bread and couldn't find it, so I used an white bread which was recommended by our baker. The flavours (gruyere cheese, smoked salmon & Dijon mustard) were delicious. Our baker had never heard of brioche bread and explained to him it was a buttery French bread, he said maybe it had a short life span and that's why I couldn't find it. :( Anyhow the panini was a delight.

I adore smoked salmon, so this was right up my alley! I couldn't find any brioche, so I went with a fresh croissant instead (close enough, I thought). I only made a single serving, but I added a bit of extra salmon, just because I could. The Dijon mustard and lemon zest were great here. This was definitely a nice lunch upgrade, thanks for posting!
