Panini Sandwiches for Summer!
Panini sandwiches are all the rage, and for good reason. I've had my panini grill for a couple of years and experimented with many sandwiches. This Cuisinart Panini and Sandwich Press
is one of my personal favorite grills! I enjoy making panini sandwiches because it allows me to be as creative as I wish! Also, breakfast burritos taste delicious after putting them between a panini grill!
A great idea is to make a sandwich bar when you are entertaining.
Put a deli meat tray out with ham, turkey, and roast beef.
Arrange a cheese tray too with cheddar, provalone, and swiss.
Also include a vegi tray with sliced avacados, tomatoes, red onions, and lettuce.
I mix up a sandwich spread that includes mayo, mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
I spread it over bakery bread, usually whole wheat french bread.
People pass through the sandwich bar and load up their plate with their sandwich fillings, and I put them together and sizzle the stacked sandwiches on the panini grill.
Sooo extra yummy!
Serve with fresh fruit, pasta salad, and chips. Don't forget some sun tea with a colorful straw and you're ready to go with a perfect SUMMERTIME meal!
Extra tip! Buy this book to find AMAZING and unique sandwiches to make...it is full of ideas. It is one of my favorite cookbooks.
