Turkey Bacon Avacado Swiss Panini with Chipotle Mayo

My husband is working late tonight and for me that means "Sandwich Night"!!!!!
I love my panini maker and I love sandwich night.  The variety and combination of panini's are endless and ohhhh so good.  If you start out with some great bread, you really can't go wrong. I usually buy an uncut loaf of Ciabatta bread at the bakery and cut it into thick slices. You can make the chipotle mayo as hot as you like.  Start out with one pepper, give it a taste.....add more if you dare!! 

Start out by cooking up some thick cut bacon.  I cook mine in the oven in a deep pizza pan at 400 degrees until crispy.  Drain on paper towels and set aside.

Now you need :
1. Thick sliced Ciabatta bread
2. Sliced fresh avocado, 
3. Sliced roasted deli turkey 
4. Thick sliced swiss cheese 
5. Chipotle mayonnaise.

For Chipotle Mayonnaise:
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
2 Chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1 Tablespoon adobo sauce from can
Salt and Pepper

Directions for Mayonnaise:

Combine all above ingredients in food processor until smooth or place ingredients in a small bowl and blend with a fork smashing peppers as you blend.  If you blend with a fork you will be left with some chunky pieces of the peppers.  Yum.

For Sandwich:
Spread 1 Tablespoon of chipotle mayo on top and 1 Tablespoon of chipotle mayo on the bottom slices of bread.
Layer Avacado, Swiss Cheese,Turkey and Bacon.  Close top.  Spread about 1 Tablespoon of butter on top and 1 Tablesppon of butter on the bottom of breads.  Grille in  hot panini press or on stove top in a grill pan until golden brown and cheese has melted.
