Making Paninis ahead of time?

Hi everyone,

I just purchased a Panini Press (love myself a good Panini) and was wondering what the best technique would be for making these ahead of time.

I work the typical 9 to 5 job, so I would like to make these to eat for lunch at work. Can I make these the night before and refrigerate them to heat up at work (we have a tiny toaster oven) or will they get too soggy?

Anyone have any good suggestions?

Yes you could make them ahead of time. I wrap the panini in one of those moisture catchers that you see in packaged meat. Most times if you ask the butcher they will package you up a stack and not charge you. If they do, ( shame on them) it's not expensive at all to buy. They really do work well for catching the steam when you reheat the panini. Since you have a toaster oven available it just might work out for you.

This blog has more great ideas on paninis.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
