“I like to experiment with my table top grill on panini like sandwiches. This one is easy and tasted awesome! From a TV show special on warm comfort food type meals. Feel free to use what ever method you have available if you dont own a panini press. These are just as good done as a traditionally made grilled cheese in a skillet or griddle but if using this method it helps to weigh the sandwich down with something heavy such as an iron skillet or a brick covered in heavy duty foil.”
