There is something unexplainably awesome about caramelized onions. Whether it is its nice pinkish hue, the strong aroma or its unique sweet and spicy taste, we don’t know, but it never fails to please anyone.
In this yummy snack, we have made a Panini using caramelized onions and cheese, with a little jalapenos for a juicy spicy touch.
Panini is a type of grilled sandwich made with breads like baguette, ciabatta and michetta. In specific, it is not made with regular sliced bread. Whenever a variety of Panini bread is available, it is better to use that. However, if you cannot lay your hands on one, you can use hot dog rolls like we have done here.
