Simply put, a panini is a grilled sandwich that is usually made in a specialized two sided grill that squashes the bread together to make it look pretty. If you don’t have a “Panini maker” or a George Foreman Grill (or a facsimile thereof) don’t panic. A panini can be cooked in a preheated ridged grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Place a heavy skillet on top of sandwiches to flatten them and then cook them for about 3 minutes on each side.
