This is one from the Real Simple archives! If you don’t have a panini press, (they take up lots of counterspace), you can easily hack a sandwich press by using a heavy canned good and a small salad or dessert plate. You might not get those satisfying grill marks, but no doubt the hot, melty sandwich will more than make up for that.
Here are our favorite paninis and pressed sandwiches:
Tomato Soup With Roast Beef, Cheddar, and Horseradish Panini
Turkey and Pesto Panini
Prosciutto and Egg Panini
Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
Chocolate and Banana Waffle Panini
