Does anyone know how to make a panini sandwich?

Answer by Scott C
Panini Caprese
Servings
Makes 2 panini sandwiches.

Description
A sample panini recipe from Panini, Bruschetta, Crostini: Sandwiches, Italian Style, by Viana La Place.

A classic southern Italian salad called caprese combines fresh white mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and basil. Here, the same ingredients bring the feeling of summer in Italy to a panino. An added touch is a sprinkling of aromatic dried oregano, an herb at home in the sun-baked Italian south.*ellipses* I like to grill the inside of the bread lightly, which keeps the panini crisp.

Ingredients
1 large ball fresh mozzarella, about 1/2 pound
2 large rolls, round or baguette-shaped
extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium tomatoes, ripe but firm, cored and sliced
salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
dried Mediterranean oregano, such as Greek oregano
8 basil leaves
Minimum-required Tools
panini grill or broiler
bread knife
clean linens to dry mozzarella
Directions
Cut the mozzarella in slices and place on folded clean tea towels.

Meanwhile, slice the rolls in half horizontally. Place bread cut-side down on a grill or cut-side up under a hot broiler, until lightly toasted. Drizzle both sides of the bread with olive oil.

Arrange tomatoes on bottom halves of rolls. Season with salt and pepper, a sprinkling of oregano, and a drizzle of olive oil. Arrange the mozzarella on top of the tomatoes. Season again with salt, pepper, oregano, and olive oil. Top with the whole basil leaves. Cover with the top halves of the rolls.

How do you cook a panini without a press?

Question by letalis: How do you cook a panini without a press?
I have an oven, grill, toaster, pan & microwave but no sandwich/toastie press or george forman grill.

How do I make a panini??

Answer by Smells like New Screen Names
Use a smaller frying pan as a press in a larger one. Then grill it in a greased pan. Almost as if you were nesting the pans together.

It works best if the small frying pan is hot as well, as you can do it in one quick process, without having to flip anything. You do have to deal with a hot pan though, so oven mitt time.

Cast iron pans of course. I use the lid of my dutch oven in a big skillet.

Sandwich/panini makers – can you use spray olive oil only and get good results?

Question by inabinet: Sandwich/panini makers – can you use spray olive oil only and get good results?
I’ve picked out a sandwich/panini maker that I want to buy, so am not asking advice for brands, etc. But I want to mostly make grilled cheese sandwiches and want to know if it’s necessary to butter the outside of the sandwich or if one can simply spray the inside of the sandwich maker with spray olive oil and still get good results…i.e. the sandwiches come out w/o sticking. Neither my hubby nor I need the extra calories and he can’t even use oleo as he is on Coumadin and oleo is on the “forbidden” list, so I’d need to coat his with real butter which is, of course, loaded with fat and calories. Any AVers out there that have experience with this? Thanks.

If I told you how easy it is to get a job in this recession, you wouldn’t believe me. But the truth is more employers are going online to find people just like you and me who are ready to work at a good job (one that pays good!). The only thing that makes sense is to stop wasting time driving around all day filling out a dozen applications and going from one boring low paying job to another. I found this site that pretty much matches you up with your dream job that is available in your city right now. I have found it very helpful. Go to FindMeJobNow.com

Butter (especially grass fed) and olive oil are both perfectly healthy, just don’t go mad with them. Simple.
