Who’s ready for a GRILLED PANINI SANDWICH?!

Sandwiches have long been our go-to when pressed for time. So long as there’s bread within reach, we’re game to hunt for ingredients. After a quick look through the cupboard or fridge you’ll be able to create a fabulous sandwich in record time!

My enjoyment of homemade sandwiches increased significantly when friends gifted me with a panini maker. Head HERE to see my favourite! I suddenly could make exceptionally delicious creations that have that signature crispy outside with each bite, followed by the warmed filling.

If you don’t have a panini maker, fear not; you can make these creations in a skillet on the stove top. If you’re so inclined to purchase one, I’ve listed my favourite panini maker in the Amazon links below.

On to my favourite GRILLED PANINI SANDWICH combinations:

NIK’S FAVOURITE

As featured in this story! It’s all about sprouted three-grain bread, Edam cheese, sliced turkey, tomato, avocado, alfalfa sprouts and a pesto mayonnaise. Butter the outside for crispy grilled bread that heightens the flavour of my favourite panini.

Grilled Panini Caprese

PANINI CAPRESE

A six-inch square of Italian focaccia bread sliced in half and brushed with herbed oil. Add layers of thin-sliced tomato, buffala mozzarella, fresh basil leaves and baby arugula tossed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Finish with salt and pepper and grill until the outside is crunchy. We’re all crazy about this PANINI CAPRESE!

Apple Pie Grilled Cheese

APPLE PIE GRILLED CHEESE

Using your favourite sliced or artisanal bread, smear the outside with our cinnamon sugar-enhanced butter. For the centre, we’re tossing grated cheddar with crispy apple. This tasty sammie treat has been kid-tested and they love it. Make it your new go-to for breakfast, lunch or even dinner, APPLE PIE GRILLED CHEESE is the best! Yum!
