First let me say that you do not need a sandwich press to make panini, so don’t let that stop you! The stove-top skillet method works just fine.
I make mine in a George Foreman grill and it works great! These are a big hit with my family, especially the kids. You know you’ve got a winner when they keep saying, “this is so good,” in between bites.
The great thing about these panini is that everyone can choose their own sandwich filling. Perfect if you have picky eaters like I do.
When I can’t find foccacia bread, I’ll use naan or a similar flat bread. In that case, I don’t split the bread. I just use two pieces to make each panini. If you want to go all out and make your bread from scratch, you can find a recipe for focaccia bread here, and a recipe for naan bread here.
