About Panini

An Italian sandwich, the panino (it’s singular form) is commonly made with small loaves of bread like ciabatta or focaccia.  Inside the sandwich, you will usually find salami, or other meats with Italian cheese like mozzarella.  Other ingredients can include red peppers, pesto, and spinach.  The toasted panino is grilled in a sandwich press and served hot.  The sandwich has become rather popular state-side in recent years and can be found in many restaurants and cafes where sandwiches are made.
