Open or closed?

How do you like your sandwiches? Having never heard or come across an open sandwich, I was quite surprised when the sandwich that I ordered @ Prolific Oven lay in front of me. Grilled and colorful vegetables with the gooey freshly melted cheese made it look very appetizing and to add, it is also low in carb as you lose a slice of bread – now tell me, what is not to like about this sandwich? After this first experience, I usually make the traditional closed sandwich for K and make an open one for me. Read the rest of this entry »

Panini

I am ambivalent when it comes to sandwiches – will eat them, if I can’t find any other healthy options but they are not my favorite dish for sure. However, when it comes to Panini, it is totally different – I absolutely adore these hot sandwiches. Traditionally, Panini is prepared with Italian bread like Ciabatta or Focaccia. I prefer it with Focaccia as it is softer and more moist than the Ciabatta. However, there is no hard and fast rule about the bread and it can be prepared using any bread that you like, just that it has to be able to hold the fillings and has to be flat, so that it can be grilled evenly. I have used different kinds of bread like Focaccia or whole-wheat or multi-grain bread, with equally tasty and satisfying results.

This is a very versatile dish – can be an appetizing starter to an elaborate Italian dinner or can just accompany a soup for a hearty and light supper.
