A panini press is an invaluable tool for creating mouthwatering grilled sandwiches. Panini ingredients are only limited to your culinary imagination. Try some of my elevated panini recipes for your family. They are quick, easy, and bursting with international flavors. Serve them with a fresh salad or homemade soup.
If you don’t have a panini press, preheat a large cast-iron skillet and a smaller one over medium-high heat. Transfer 1 panini to large skillet and place small skillet on top. Grill the panini until bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the panini on other side, top with small skillet, and grill for another 2 minutes. Couldn’t be any easier or more delicious.
