• Raspberry Brie Panini

    Oh boy. This recipe may be the final straw. I think I may break down and finally buy a panini maker. Do you have one? Do you use it a lot?

      Have you seen the Cuisinart Griddle? We don't have room for a lot of "accessories" in our tiny NYC apartment, but this particular griddle is a fantastic all-in-one. http://www.cuisinart.com/products/grills/gr-4n.htmlI'm making this asap. Looks so perfectly yummy.

      I may have to break down and buy a panini maker too – this sounds AMAZING!

      another vote for a George Foreman grill. We use it often to make them (just push down to flatten the sandwich).

      I don't actually have a panini press. I kinda like frying my sandwiches like you would a grilled cheese, or toasting them in the toaster oven.

      I use my panini maker to do everything…grill hotdogs or pork chops–a quick hamburger. love it!

      Ho guys, thanks so much for your comments on my panini and Elle, this one was made on a Cuisinart Griddler too. This is not a compensated endorsement, just my honest experience. I love that appliance, it is so easy to clean because the cast iron plates just pop out and into the dishwasher. I use it for steaks, chops, grilled veggies, pancakes and paninis so it is a versatile appliance that gets good use in my kitchen. Drop by and see a few more paninis among 500+ recipes with photos on my blog at http://www.rockrecipes.caThanks, Barry.

      i just use my george forman and weigh it down with a heavy cook book on top. works the same just about.

    13. liz stanley said… July 22, 2010 6:48 pm

      yes, i think we really might need one now. also.. can't stop thinking about NUTELLA and raspberries in this thing. is that wierd?

    14. my spatula said… July 22, 2010 6:14 pm

      YES. we L.O.V.E our panini maker. you won't regret it.

    15. jess r. said… July 22, 2010 5:43 pm

      amazing. i have a flat full of fresh picked raspberries. now i only wish i could eat wheat!

    16. paula said… July 22, 2010 3:20 pm

      oh my this looks divine!

      Used a George Foreman for years and finally decided to splurge and get a decent panini maker: we got the Breville from Williams-Sonoma. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. You can control the temperature and width of the sandwich.I have some killer sandwich combos, maybe we should have a panini party?

    18. Hillary said… July 22, 2010 1:11 pm

      That panini looks amazing!

    19. Cara Crowley said… July 22, 2010 1:10 pm

      I have a panini press but mostly I use a foil wrapped (clean) brick when making grilled sandwiches. That sandwich looks seriously delicious!

    20. kalanicut said… July 22, 2010 11:17 am

      This recipe looks seriously, dangerously good. Wow. Something to dig out that G. Foreman for…now where is it?

    21. becky said… July 22, 2010 10:57 am

      just like any grill- i hate cleaning it, but other than that i LOVE mine! don't use it as often as i crave paninis, but whenever i bust it out… YUM!!!!!

    22. bex said… July 22, 2010 10:34 am

      i just have a cheap one from Target or some place, but it works great and i use it all the time! maybe more so after seeing this recipe.

    23. Miggy said… July 22, 2010 10:00 am

      Yep we use our foreman grill too…I hate buying kitchen appliances that have but one use. And those look amazing. Brie and raspberries….one of my favorite combos.

    24. Jessica said… July 22, 2010 9:36 am

      I keep trying to convince my husband that we need one, but so far it's a no go. 🙂

    25. ashlynn said… July 22, 2010 9:02 am

      use it weekly – looks yummy!!

    26. Janelle said… July 22, 2010 8:46 am

      I too use my Foreman grill. In fact it's the only thing I use it for. And now I rarely use it. (I wonder where it is, I must not have used it since I moved a year ago.)These days If I am in the mood for a grilled sandwhich, I just do it in a pan. But grill marks are nice and toasty/crunchy…ok, I gotta dig out the Forman and make a panini for lunch. Yum.But I can't imagine stylish Liz having a Foreman grill. :-D(sorry for my stream of consciousness comment, lol)

    27. simply blythe said… July 22, 2010 8:40 am

      that looks worth the buy!

    28. The Maiden Metallurgist said… July 22, 2010 8:40 am

      I'm just use two skillets, one for cooking, one for weighing down the sandwich. I think this would be even better with some spicy arugula. Thanks for the inspiration!

    29. Melissa said… July 22, 2010 7:35 am

      I got a little foreman grill that does the trick. Doesn't take up as much space and a lot cheaper.

    30. Elle said… July 22, 2010 7:12 am

      I have the Cuisinart griddler, its one of the best christmas gifts I've ever received, let me tell you! I use it for paninis, (and if its too hot to grill,) and it came with griddle plates too, so I always use it for pancakes.

    31. Lauren said… July 22, 2010 7:11 am

      Yes! Get one!My boyfriend and I got one pretty cheap (at Kohls on sale + coupon) and we use it all the time. Everything tastes better with grill marks. Plus, it is surprisingly easy to clean. Here's a link to ours: http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/kitchendining/kitchenelectrics/wafflesandwichmakers/PRD~373399/Bella+Kitchen+Panini+Maker.jsp

    32. lifeofkevrik said… July 22, 2010 6:33 am

      I use my George Foreman grill and it works great! Plus you can grill all sorts of things on it – burgers, vegetables, chicken, anything!

    33. laura evans/photography said… July 22, 2010 1:47 am

      you can buy a panini maker?????? i think i just died & went to heaven though some how i doubt they sell them at the bx. Now i must hunt one down so i can enjoy the delicious delights that is a panini on a daily basis!

    34. Bloom said… July 22, 2010 1:31 am

      I always want one too, but can never seem to break down and buy yet another kitchen appliance. My sister makes them all the time with their Foreman grill. So, two votes for that I guess!Also, I have been thinking about your memory game tutorial for days and am so excited to do it! Love love it! -anne

    35. Rachel said… July 21, 2010 9:38 pm

      I don't have a panini press, but a Foreman grill can do the same job and is at least multifunctional. Or have you considered using your waffle iron? I haven't tried it yet but it seems like a genius idea to me. http://www.waffleizer.com/waffleizer/2010/06/waffle-iron-panini.htmlhttp://www.waffleizer.com/waffleizer/2010/06/waffle-iron-panini-part-two.html

      I have a panini press and use it pretty often. love the grill marks and how toasty it gets. mmm, want one now.

    38. Caroline said… July 21, 2010 8:55 pm

      mmm a little chocolate in there wouldn't hurt either

    39. mskaz said… July 21, 2010 8:38 pm

      I don't have one but whenever I see recipes like this, I swear I'm getting one. I say you buy one and do a weekly recipe to justify all of us buying them. Tax write-off?
