Great Panini have been around for centuries, and these days they’re being grilled up in practically every corner café in America.
Anyway, i think you need to get new references about best bread for panini, because if you are cooking with the best ingredient, you will get the best result.
The popularity of grilling panini at home reached a fever pitch when Oprah Winfrey featured the Breville Ikon Panini Press among her 2007 “favorite things”. That model (which I use) and many others began selling out in housewares stores everywhere. Here are 8 tips that will ensure that the great panini you make at home are as scrumptious as can be.
Choose Your Grilling Method Wisely
Like I learned in the “Grill Smackdown Method,” not everyone gives the same results. A panini press may be the easiest to use and the most heat and pressure control, but it’s also the most costly solution. Many people can just grill a grill and/or skillet for sandwiches, but this can be unworkable and cumbersome. Everything depends on your personal taste and maybe on the amount of grilling you plan on.
Experiment With a Variety of Breads and Fillings
It does not mean you must confine yourself to foccases, mozzarillas and other Italian ingredients simply as panini originated in Italy. Or just delicious ingredients. It’s a panino if you have bread and fillings on the grill! Try dessert recipes, pita and biscuits, mango salsa and apple fillings. Let your taste buds guide you and enjoy it!
Go For The Crunch
What is the difference between panini and “regular sandwiches?” This is the barbecue! Bread grilled with grilled panini – take advantage of it for a crostini-like crunch with the brushing of olive oil or melted butter. Columbus Foodie recommends that a butter-flavored cooking spray be used, yet another great idea to save a few calories.
Be Careful with “wet” Ingredients
A soggy sandwich no one likes. Many of our great fillings, such as tomatoes and juiciness meats, are not ideally placed for paninies where crispness is crucial, which we like on “regular” ungrilled sandwiches. Does that mean that the panini (and panini) are not entirely in question? Not at all! Just find ways to keep excess moisture in check. In order to remove tomato seeds, for example, add breadcrumbs to fish. Another great tip is famous chef Tom Colicchio: put your wet ingredients into the center of the sandwich. Thanks to Foodie Obsessed to mention this!
Keep Round Tops Turned In
You will find that it can be a real challenge to avoid rolling over and pouring out your panini’s content if you attempt to grill round breads like baguettes. The answer to this dilemma – a great technique I heard about in the blog of the Baking Bites: turn round bread inside out to make contact between the flat surfaces. Genius!
Cut with a Straight-edged Knife
A sharp, straight-edged knife, rather than a serrated one, will ensure a smooth separation for your finished great panini.
Have a Panini Party!
The best to know if your great panini are hitting the mark is to test them out on friends and family. Buy a selection of breads and fillings, fire up the grill, and allow your guests to create their own panini combinations. You may even glean some new ideas!
Greens Go Last
Love to include lettuce in your great panini, but can’t stand to have them wilt in the grilling process? Food Network’s George Duran (aka “Ham on the Street”) offers a great solution: stick ’em in last. Grill your sandwich and then insert anything you’d like to keep leafy – lettuce, spinach, arugula, cilantro to name a few – right before serving.
After you choose the great Panini maker for yourself, we have some tips, and recipes to help get you cooking. The cooking plates are non-stick, there’s no need to use cooking spray. Using cooking spray can affect how the press heats and cooks. Remember, anything with higher sugar content will cook and brown faster.
