If you have certain basic items on hand at all times great panini will just be minutes away. Of course, it’s all a matter of personal taste. After making a few different panini you’ll start to recognize the flavors you like best. Here are some suggestions to get you started.
MUST HAVE:Sliced sourdough– it grills well and is also excellent for non-grilled sandwiches and breakfast toast, so you’re not likely to waste it NICE TO HAVE:Pita, rye, ciabatta, focaccia, raisin bread, puff pastry, English muffins, french rolls
MUST HAVE: Deli meats – any deli meat can be a good candidate for panini NICE TO HAVE:Rotisserie chicken, fish filets, eggs, bacon, prosciutto, flank or skirt steak, turkey, shrimp, pulled pork
MUST HAVE: Mustard, mayonnaise, olive oil, butter – these versatile ingredients are great accompaniments to nearly all types of panini NICE TO HAVE:Pesto spread, olive tapenade, sundried tomato spread, mango chutney, peanut butter, preserves
Often it’s the “extras” that make the sandwich: red onion, avocado, apples, spinach, arugula, tomatoes, chocolate
Stock your refrigerator and pantry and get grilling!
