Homamade Panini

As a sandwich lover I have been wanting a panini press for quite some time, when I came across this post at Iowa Girl Eats I decided to make a homemade version ASAP.

Leftover Christmas ham, swiss cheese, baby spinach leaves, and plain Jane bread with a spray of Pam on it before putting into the preheated pan.

Press in action.

After completion, the most beautiful sandwich ever made in this kitchen.

Verdict - amazing.  The sandwich was heated all the way through, the cheese was perfectly melted and the spinach slightly wilted, Emma said "This is the best sandwich ever" and promptly devoured her entire sandwich, I agreed 100%.

So now the question is do I really need a panini press?  They do look pretty cool and I do love gadgets, but until this methods proves problematic, I think I will stick with it.

Do you make homemade paninis?  What is your favorite combo on a sandwich?

Now that I have figured out a way to do them I have a feeling we will be enjoying these a lot.   I am dreaming of all the flavor combos, the main one one my mind would be smoked brisket and cheddar cheese.  Mmmmm. . .


  1. It's only 9:00 in the morning, but seeing that is making me really hungry!!!

  2. I was seriously amazing, I think you could make an excellent breakfast sandwich that was too, adding eggs, oh and maybe bacon, mmm, bacon. . .
