Corned Beef & Cheddar Panini

We were trying to decide on what to make for lunch on St Patrick’s Day.  Being on a Sunday this year, and we usually make Panini’s for lunch, we decided to try an Irish inspired creation.  After a quick trip to the local deli, we picked up some shaved corned beef, a fresh loaf of whole wheat crusty bread and some aged cheddar.  The creation tasted great and was a hit with the kids.  Tell us what you think of this recipe, or what you changed with the recipe to make it your own.
