My cooking club theme this month was paninis! It was a really fun theme – we had two panini makers going to make a diverse selection of sandwiches. We had different breads, different fillings, and even a dessert panini. (Note: We never ever skip dessert in this club!)
Here’s the lineup:
Fig and Prosciutto Panini – the salty ham and sweet fig grilled on thick bread made a great combination
Sicilian Panini – Italian coldcuts, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, and pesto grilled on crusty Italian bread; a superb replica of the sandwich served at Dave’s Fresh Pasta
Buffalo Chicken Panini – creamy buffalo chicken on toasted Pillsbury croissants; a creative and delicious way to get your ‘buffalo chicken’ fix
Greek Egg Panini – hard boiled egg, fresh baby spinach, sliced red onion, and feta cheese on whole wheat pita
And last, but not least – Paula Deen’s Sweet Dessert Paninis with banana, Nutella, marshmallows, and chocolate. Words can’t describe it.
Here’s a few photos of the event:
Do you have a panini maker? Is it gathering dust somewhere? After Thanksgiving, drag it out and try some of these combinations!
