I just purchased a new panini grill. Its Calphalon Contemporary Non-stick panini grill from Macys. It a good purchase for sure. This is my first panini attempt.
Here are both the recipes.
Ingredients: Basil Pesto, Fresh herbs such as basil, chives, oregano, and parsley, cooking white wine, onions, bell-peppers, portobello mushrooms, artichokes, brie cheese, garlic Tuscan bread, salt and pepper.
Method: Grill all the vegetables with herbs and white wine. This step is same as my previous sandwich recipe. Except, I have used brie instead of gouda. Brie is a soft cheese perfect for paninis. You can also use mozzarella, provolone or Gruyere. Any cheese which melts easily. Take slices of bread, spread basil pesto, add grilled veggies, and top it with cheese. Add another slice of bread. Butter the panini press and grill it. Change the side and grill it. Ready to serve.
Ingredients: Sliced tomatoes, cherry vinegar (I added fresh cut cherries in balsamic vinegar and kept it for a week), fresh basil leaves, provolone cheese, basil pesto, salt and pepper, garlic Tuscan bread.
Method: Layer the sandwich and grill both sides. The pictures will give you a better idea.
