I have a panini maker myself and have used it for a variety of things, including a couple of the ideas shown here. I think having one is an excellent tool especially for a smaller kitchen (like mine) because of its versatility and what you can use it for when perhaps you have other things going on the stove top as well. It’s also great because it helps minimize what you have to clean up if want to make a smaller meal. Check out these ideas from Bon Appetit!
