Or if you have a cast iron skillet - when I don't drag out the panini maker, I revert back to the 50s grilled sandwich - make on a cast iron hot cake griddle and top it with a cast iron skillet with a piece of foil between the sandwich and the skillet.

mmmmm There are some GREAT panini ideas here!

I just got a Cuisinart Griddler for my birthday, and am looking for ideas on what to use it on.

Experimenting with pork chops tonight - I grilled mushrooms, onions and vinegar peppers first, and will grill the pork chops later on.

Can't wait to try some of these sandwiches!

Panini is the plural form. It would have been a peanut butter and banana panino.

That said, try my latest development, Panino Del Monte Cristo.

Two slices of bread of choice
two slices of Black Forest ham
two slices of roasted turkey breast
two slices of swiss cheese (with holes)
one large egg
1/4 cup egg subsititute

Heat griddle, cast iron griddle pan, panini press, or a George Foreman grill (my personal weapon of choice). Scramble egg and egg substitute together. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture, turning once. Cook one side of both slices of bread on griddle surface until browned. Turn one slice of bread over, add ham, turkey, and swiss cheese, then top with second slice of bread, uncooked side up. Close press or GF grill, and cook until browned. If using griddle and weight, apply weight to top of panino until browned, then turn over and repeat, if required. Cut panino diagonally, dust with powdered sugar, and serve with large dollop of strawberry preserves.

Excellent accompaniment would be a mixed berry salad with honey yogurt dressing and a strawberry flavored beverage, such as a Strawberry Julius or my aforementioned My Lady's Kiss cocktail, or maybe a glass of Strawberry Quick if you're so inclined.

lol @ Michael in FtW


by the way, if you have neither a brick nor a cast iron skillet, a tea kettle filled with water works very nicely.

Your electric iron will work even better, but don't put it on a steam setting or the bread gets soggy.
