I really enjoy how simple it was to entertain using a panini maker. For the book exchange party Jasmine and I hosted for our sister Jennifer, we provided soup and a grilled cheese bar for the guests. Once they had chosen their bread and cheeses for dinner, they could grill their sandwiches using the panini maker. It was fun, simple, and tasty. See more of the party here.
This is my take on Panera's Frontega Chicken Panini.
For this sandwich, I spread chipotle mayo on the "everything Italian" bread. I layered slices of smoked chicken (from the deli), a slice of mozzarella cheese (also from the deli), spinach, tomato slices, and red onion. I pressed the sandwich in the panini maker.
Tasty, tasty, tasty! You have to try this sandwich!
