The Best of the Best Panini Press Cookbook: 100 Surefire Recipes for Making Panini--and Many Other Things--on Your Panini Press or Other Countertop Grill (Paperback)
Who knew this simple and easy-to-use kitchen appliance could do so much?
Kathy Strahs, for one, did. Creator of the multiple-award-winning food blog Panini Happy, the web's go-to destination for panini-press wisdom, Strahs does wonderful things with a panini press, from crafting perfect Italian-style panini to building scrumptious and creative grilled cheese sandwiches to making things you never thought you could make on a countertop grill or griddle.
Dig into these recipes to discover your panini press's impressive range—including breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners, for the weekday whirl and for relaxing times on weekends. About half the recipes in this book—a collection of the 100 best recipes from Strahs's earlier book, The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook—are for panini, such as a robust Cheddar, Apple, and Whole-Grain Mustard Panini or a zesty Chimichurri Steak Panini. The remaining recipes are for dishes you will be amazed to learn you can make on a countertop grill, including quesadillas, croques monsieurs, brats, burgers, salads topped with crisply grilled meats, and even grilled desserts.
This beautiful volume will inspire great cooking and fun meals, without the fuss or effort.
