Actually, "panini" is an Italian word for any type of sandwiches, so with any kind of bread and your favourite filling, you are good to go... do you have any particular type of sandwich in mind?

Try chicken/cranberry/brie....bacon/lettuce/tomato....bacon/prefried egg/chutney....roast beef/red onion/onion jam.....ham/cheese/onion...etc.

Really, just as Urmaniac says, use the types of fillings you like in sandwiches but imagine them hot!

Edited: Ooops! :) I am assuming you have a panini press so will be having them hot?

Actually, you can make panini sandwiches without owning a press. I use my grill pan and a foil-wrapped brick. As a matter of fact, I have two bricks that I've put through my dishwasher that are now wrapped with foil. They are part of my cooking tools. They work quite well for pressing sandwiches. I also use them for a dish called "chicken under a brick," which is a delicious way to cook spatchcocked chicken.

I'm sure some folks would wonder what in the world I've been thinking with some of the strange things I keep for use in my kitchen.

I like the combination of prosciutto, fontina and roasted red peppers. Fontina melts really well.

I watched Emeril just the other night and he was making a huge panini sandwich. He used a brick that he said he put through the dishwsher first and then wrapped it in foil.

My favorite is he Cuban, Roasted pork loin, smoked ham, dill pickles, mustard, and swiss. We did these for New Years Eve for a small dinner party, had them along wit a dill potato salad, yummy! But hey like they say take what you like and mix the ingredients and vary the bread types.

I like fresh mozzerella, sliced tomatoes and basil or pesto.
Toss some sliced chicken in pesto, top it with mozz, spinach and pine nuts, grill it up, yum!

panini these days is a term for a technique to make a pressed grilled sandwich - and is not a "recipe". Heck - my Mom used to make "panini" sandwiches back when I was a kid in the 50's - usually ham and cheese cooked in a cast iron skillet, with a bit of butter, with a bacon press on top.

I've had corned beef and cabbage paninis ... I've had pastami with sauerkraut and swiss cheese pananis ... I've have Cuban paninis when we lived in Miami. You can make a BLT panini. Heck - you could even make a peanut butter and banana panini!
