Prosciutto, Fontina, and Fig Panini,Related Articles

A panini or panino is a sandwich made with Italian bread, usually served warmed by grilling or toasting. However, in many English-speaking countries, a panini is a grilled sandwich made from many types of bread. Examples of bread types used for modern panini are baguette, ciabatta, and michetta.

This weeks panini recipe will leave your mouth watering for more but don’t do it. I like putting a art kosher deli pickle on the side. If you don’t have a panini grill, place sandwiches in a grill pan or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Cover sandwiches with foil, and top with a heavy skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
