“Panino” is Italian for “grilled sandwich,” and yes, a gooey/cheesy/meaty/veggie smushed sandwich is flat-out awesome (pun intended). So I was thrilled when my gift-savvy sister gave me a panini press for Christmas a couple years back. I lusted for one but never would have spent money myself on an appliance simply to make grilled sandwiches.
Still, if you’re like me, after a while you start to run out of sandwich ideas and recipes, and that panini press is on the shelf most of the time. Guess what? It’s time to pull it back out of the cabinet. You can cook way more than sandwiches with that panini press!
This post (“17 Panini Press Recipes That Don’t Involve a Sandwich”) is sponsored by Mode Media, giving me an opportunity to take the time to search the web for recipes to share with all of you. Opinions and recommendations are my own, as always.
