They really are. A well made panini can be just about the best thing ever.

I'm on the last bite of a smoked ham, tomato and leerdammer cheese panini. AMAZING!

If you've got a george forman (or similar) grill the toasted sandwich and panini world is your oyster.

best paninis ever:

the classic ham/cheese/tomato

ham/cheese for all you tomato haters

chicken mayonaise (if the mayonaise is properly creamy it's a jizz worthy experience)

mozarella/grilled peppers/pesto

cheese/beans

Cheese of your choice of course, I like mozarella, but chedder and edam are freakin awesome too.

Share with me your panini master-pieces! (I need a new idea 4 tmw )

Fresh Mozzarella, Basil Pesto with pignoli nuts, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts on a freshly baked ciabata. mmmmmmm. I work in my mom's cafe and that's our specialty

I'm more into the classic combo's myself - Cheese (mozarella), ham (thinly sliced), some tomatoe.

Panini's suck


controversial, and unnecessary.

I didn't ask if you liked them, I asked which one's people liked. If you don't like them you have no reason to post.

Go start a Panini's suck thread if you feel that strongly about it

You should try my speciality

Get a tortilla wrap
Spread tomato puree on it
Sprinkle grated cheese on it
Place ham on one side of it
Fold it in half
Place it on a heated pan (no oil or anything needed) until it starts to go brown on the bottom
Turn it over and leave it on until the other side goes brown
Take it off and serve with... Anything that'll go!

i had a panini for lunch ^.^

it was hellishly expensive though.

if i make my own, i usually have mozarella, sundried tomatoes, grapes, olives, onion and then sprinkle it with black pepper, sea salt, a bit of a fresh basil, olive oil and maybe a bit of vinegar. yummy

i had one before which was sooo nice; goat's cheese, wilted spinach and caramelised walnuts. it sounds nasty but it was lovely. also, goat's cheese and caramelised red onion is nice.

apple and brie is good together, and feta with almost anything is good. apricots and brie go really well as well.

I don't understand why people talk about multiple panini as 'panini's'.

Panini is the multiple of panino (singular sandwich).

I can only describe the taste and texture as 'cloying' (if i spelt it correctly) It feels like it's trying to invade my mouth and live there.

I had japanese tofu once, it was quite nice, its sort of bready and comes in this liquid that the tofu soaks up.

Well, you do now.

Also...if you're from Scotland, why type using an Americanism of 'cus'?

Surely you'd use 'cause' when bastardising the English language?

I used to toast ham/swiss and turkey/swiss sandwiches in the toaster oven for a while until my parents got a Panini press a few days ago, the things great but a bitch to clean since it wont come apart and cant be put in the dishwasher.

My Dad recently managed a band that toured Europe. He phoned one day, after I'd just finished making a cheese and ham toastie. He heard me eating while I was talking to him and asked me what it was. After I told him he went on a wee bit of a rant on how in the Portugal/Spain area, in cafes people tended not to serve anything else. He went on about how sometimes you had a layer of cheese and then a layer of ham and sometimes its a bit of bread soaked in melted cheese and didn't shut up for a while.

I just loled. You kinda had to be there.

Restaurants and cafés need to stop putting the word paninis on their menus. These uses of foreign words really really annoys me.

Panini means sandwiches in Italian, so when you order 'a panini' you're ordering a sandwiches, so what they should really give you is a normal sandwich (or several). Why they don't just say toasted baguette I don't f*cking know.

Actually, as baguette is French you should say "je veux un baguette grillé avec _______".
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

it might mean sandwich in italy, but it has come to mean 'toasted thingy' thingy being the panini bread, which is not a baguette.

there needs to be a way to distinguish between regular toasted sandwiches and that which has become known as the panini.

"Toasted thingy thingy".

You put forward a great argument. I'm sure you will notice that if you order a 'panini' you will get a piece of toasted baguette, whereas if you order a toasted sandwich you will get a toasted sliced-bread sandwich.

panini bread is not baguette, it should be more like ciabatta. If you're getting toasted bagettes i'd complain, they're doing it wrong.

To get back to the point...

I tried this out, but I added spring onion and green pepper too. It was freakin awesome.

I was at a bbq at this mexican dudes house and he served us bbq'd tortilla with cheese in it. Those were amazing too.
