Blessed are the Merciful
Matthew 5:7, Jesus gave us a challenge. Be full of mercy. Be known as person of mercy. You do this, you shall be blessed. People shall show you mercy. If you refuse, you will be not showered with acts of mercy.

5 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 ounces fresh goat cheese (recommended: Deborah Rogers Farmstead Goat Cheese)
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh thyme
2 sprigs fresh cilantro
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 sprig fresh dill
3 to 4 large fresh basil leaves

Clean the dark black gills from the mushrooms, then drizzle with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place over medium heat on an open barbecue grill, face down. After a few minutes, turn them over and continue to cook.
In a mixing bowl combine the goat cheese with minced garlic, salt and pepper, to taste, and the mixture of fresh herbs torn by hand.
Mix the cheese until all of the ingredients have been incorporated and a nice creamy texture is achieved.
When the mushrooms begin to get soft and give off a little of their juice, add a nice spoonful of the goat cheese mixture right into the center of each portobello.
Close the lid of the barbecue and let cook until the cheese gets bubbly and the mushrooms are nice and soft.

(Chef’s note:) We replaced from banana to Plantain), we replaced nutmeg spice to “all spice”. We made a homemade maple syrup by making simple syrup and adding maple extract. We didn’t use vegetable oil but extra virgin olive oil and we replaced cognac to hazelnut liquor.

6 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (from about 1 medium orange)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cognac (optional)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
8 slices Texas toast or other thick white bread
3 large ripe bananas
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Confectioners’ sugar, for garnish
Pure maple syrup, for garnish

Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, orange juice, vanilla, cognac, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of salt in a bowl.
Place the bread in 2 shallow baking dishes in a single layer. Pour the egg mixture over the bread; let soak for 10 minutes.
While the bread is soaking, preheat a grill to medium. Place a flat cast-iron skillet on the grill. Brush the bananas with the melted butter; cook in the skillet until they are browned on all sides and beginning to release their juices, about 3 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer the bananas to a plate, then wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel. When the bananas are cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
Remove a piece of bread from the egg mixture, allowing the excess to drip off. Place on a cutting board, top with four or five banana slices, then cover with another piece of bread.
Brush the skillet on the grill lightly with vegetable oil. Add the sandwich to the pan; place a grill press or heavy pan over the sandwich to weigh it down. Cook until the bread is nicely toasted and golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip, press and cook on the other side until golden.
Keep warm; repeat with the remaining bread and bananas, adding more oil as needed. Transfer the panini to plates and slice in half diagonally; top with confectioners’ sugar and plenty of maple syrup.
