My wife and I are preparing a basket of items for a family who's mother just had rather serious surgery and just returned home. Knowing thay are likely to be inundated with full scale meals from other well wishers, my thought was just to include a handful of paninis that they could eat for lunch, heat up for dinner or throw away if they don't get to them. The idea being that it doesn't require any preparation, dishes, etc.
My question is as to their viability if I make them on a panini press and refrigerate them. Will the bread get hard, overly soggy, etc. More or less, are they going to end up getting some sort of inedible sandwich? My plan would be ciabatta bread, turkey, bacon, etc. I don't necessarily see a problem, but am open to any tips. Obviously you see them in coffee shops and delis all the time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
