anini is a way of life in Italy. We do have hamburgers and fries here, but regulars to the country know that the Italian preference for Panini is much more than a sandwich. It's an art form that we take pride in and it isn't something you can pick up in your local sandwich shop. Panini sandwiches are a handy way to feed a crowd. They're also an adventurous way to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids, because you don't have to follow any set ingredients or rules. The Panini revolution has spread across the globe, and today people enjoy them in most countries. This is largely due to their convenience, as they can be prepared with whatever ingredients you choose, and served whenever you'd like.
” Panini stands for grilled Italian sandwiches. The Italian word panino means little or bun, cute isn’t it? “
Panini is actually a kind of sandwich that’s prepared similarly to those grilled sandwiches we all love, except it is normally served hot. That’s not all though. The main thing that differentiates the sandwich from others is the fact that it can be made with a variety of ingredients and used to prepare fillings that are both sweet and savory. This can include meats, cheeses, vegetables, fruit – pretty much anything a person wants to use in their sandwich.
How to cook Panini food?
Panini are typically made with a crusty bread that can withstand high heat without getting soggy or falling apart. You’ll also need some sort of filling — anything from cheese and tomato to chicken salad or tuna salad will do. The result should be melted cheese oozing out of every crevice, with your favorite ingredients in between two slices of bread that have been grilled until golden brown and crispy on both sides.
The first step when making a panini is to preheat your panini press. Follow the instructions that came with your appliance; they might vary depending on the brand and model you have. You’ll want it hot enough so that when you put your sandwich on it, it sizzles and cooks instantly!
Next, add your filling and top it with cheese (if desired). Place your sandwich on the bottom plate of your panini press, then close it up and let ‘er rip! Your panini should cook through within 5 minutes or so depending on the thickness of the bread.
