Pictures and tips on how to put together clean but flavorful meals! Tip #1: Always say yes to avocado.
I know a lot of people have been dying to know the secrets behind my paninis. I usually just answer "magic," but because I now have a blog giving away all my finest secrets to a happy life, it's time to give it up!
My first secret: mix cheeses! Feta & mozzarella is my favorite combo! I go with feta crumbles and mozzarella slices on top so it melts everything together. (Ask deli to slice as thin as possible). If you want more of a caprese flavoring you can get fresh mozzarella and slice it yourself! Other flavorful combos, depending on the style panini you're going for, are american & cheddar, feta & provolone, mozzarella & parmesan.
My go to panini is on sourdough bread. Add pesto, avocado, feta crumbles, tomatoes, spinach, roasted red peppers, mozzarella slices and balsamic glaze. Also good with tuna salad, turkey, prosciutto &/or chicken.
With Garlic Chicken
My panini maker only has ridges on one side to make cleanup easier. Spray both sides with cooking spray of choice. *For crispier bread, brush olive oil, butter or mayonnaise on both sides of sandwich. Can also use a stove-top pan, lid recommended for melting.
Paninis are like pizza! Experiment with different ingredients. Try new breads, fillings, sauces, spreads! It's always nice when your taste buds appreciate you, and paninis are one of the best ways to make that happen!
