Ham & Brie Panini with Strawberry + Basil Jam

8 slices Rustic Sourdough Bread
1 pound Deli Ham
5-6 tablespoons butter at room temperature
1/2 pound Brie Cheese, thickly slice
¼ jar Sallie’s Greatest Strawberry + Basil Jam 
1 bag Baby Spinach

Spread 4 slices of the bread with ½ Tbs. butter and 1 Tbs. jam and then top with ham, brie slices and baby spinach.  Spread the remaining slices with ½ Tbs. butter and place butter side down on top of the sandwich.  Press gently to slightly flatten.  Heat a heavy skillet and melt 1 Tbs. butter, evenly coating the pan.  Place each sandwich on the grill or Panini pan and toast until both sides are golden brown and the cheese begins to melt (if using a grill pan, weigh down with another pan).  Serve immediately.
