9 Surprising Foods to Grill on a Panini Press + Printable Fridge Poster

Happy Holidays to all! My gift to you: a FREE printable fridge poster featuring 9 Surprising Foods to Grill on a Panini Press (pictured above). You can find full recipes for many of these items already on Panini Happy:

  1. French Toast (I’ve got two new versions coming in my cookbook!)
  2. Ice Cream Cones
  3. Bacon
  4. Cakes
  5. Fritattas (coming soon!)
  6. Corn on the cob (coming soon!)
  7. Quesadillas (plus a new version in the book!)
  8. Seafood (coming soon!)
  9. Hot Dogs (coming soon!)

Print out the poster and stick it on your refrigerator, or share it with someone who’s receiving a panini press as a holiday gift this year. It’s a helpful reminder of just how many terrific uses there are for this versatile small appliance!

As you know, I love to explore all that a panini press can do –  sandwiches and beyond (be sure to check out Panini Happy’s Best Panini Press Recipes of 2012). I’ve got many more to come in the new year – be sure to stay in touch so you don’t miss a thing!

Panini Happy is about to enter its 5th year, and it wouldn’t be possible without all of the support, comments and ideas you all have been sharing over the year. Wishing you all very happy holidays and much love, peace and happiness in 2013!
