Panini: An Exotic Twist to Your Grilled Sandwich

Panini is a wonderful Italian grilled sandwich made with delectable fillings. What makes Panini different from the run-of-the-mill sandwiches is that it is never made with sliced bread. Normally, special breads like baguette, ciabatta and michetta are used. However, if you are not able to lay your hands on any of these, use hot dog rolls instead.

Once you decide on the bread to use, a Panini is very easy to make because you can use practically any fillings of your choice. You can brush the bread with olive oil or butter, pack it with amazing fillings and cook it to a delectable crispness.

Normally, a Panini combines a type of cheese with veggies, fruits, nuts and perhaps a spread or sauce too. A dash of herbs or spices will add fun and spirit to the Panini, making it tastier still. Mozzarella is a common choice while cheeses like feta or cottage cheese are more interesting. You can be innovative and use spreads like pesto or salsa to make your Panini succulent and spicy. Ingredients like caramelized onions and roasted bell pepper will give a wonderful taste and mouth-feel to your Panini, while a dash of garam masala or pav bhaji masala will give it a desi touch.

We bring to you a superb collection of Panini recipes that includes classics like Tomato Basil Mozzarella Panini and Roasted Bell Pepper and Feta Cheese Panini, as well as those with a twist like the Pesto and Mozzarella Panini and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Panini. The Paneer Bhurji Panini combines the best of Indian and Italian cuisine, showing you that nothing is impossible!

These are just examples, and in no way an exhaustive collection, because there are uncountable variants of Panini that you can make, and many more that you can create with a spark of imagination. So, try these recipes and be inspired to try many more – from our website and mobile app, as well as create your own.
