Hamburger buns (inside out) with BUTTER on the outside

On the inside:
Sharp cheddar cheese AND smoked gouda
Sliced kosher dill pickle (not too much)
Course ground brown mustard

Cooked in a frying pan; artfully flattened rather than mashed senseless in a panini press....
I like the sound of that Janet. I never would have thought of inside out hamburger buns, and I'm also with you on no panini press. Panini smashed sandwiches don't do a thing for me.

I so agree with this!

I have only had a sandwich in a panini press once, and wasn't fond of it at all. I'm with you and Janet here. I can understand wanting to get good grill marks or a good crust on the bread, but it so often seems overdone, at least to me.

Just the way I like mine also. I am afraid, unlike the rest of you gourmands, I am not too adventurous in my eating habits. Too old and stuck in my ways. so many of todays foods were not around when I was a child and that is where my likes and dislikes come from.
