Need ideas for my Panini Grill.

Fathers Day I received a Panini grill from my kids. Aw.. great, maybe I`ll use it. Use it every day. But tired of ham and cheese and PB&J. And my youngest eats no meat. I should say it makes the best grilled cheese with out oil/butter ?

  1. Bananas & strawberry jam

    1. my friend tried haloumi in a sandwich press, and it was lovely.
      In NZ, one of the ultimate 'toasties' is onion, cheese and pineapple.
      Oh Yeah.

        With haloumi you want to griddle the cheese separately and then press it into a sandwich (add roasted red peppers and chimichurri).

      2. My favorite:

        Vine ripened tomatoes
        Fresh Mozzarella
        Fresh Basil.

          1. Split open a baguette and butter the inside insert sliced brie and good ham. Grill until cheese is melted.

            You're welcome.

              Brie and sliced pear or apple is also yummy.
