Okay, guys, I haven’t tried using a waffle iron as a Panini maker yet, but I have been wishing for a Panini press for a long time.
The problem is—I really don’t want to clog up my kitchen workspace with another appliance. My cupboards and drawers are full enough. And, really, how often would I use it? Clearly, I’ve been having trouble justifying this.
But this might work!
Waffle Iron Paninis with Spinach, Ham and Cheddar
I do have the old waffle iron that my mom used to make breakfast waffles for our daughters when they’d spend the night with my parents. It looks armor-plated, and I really believe it could take an experiment like this ham and cheddar sandwich with all its squares and grooves.
Let me know if you’ve ever given your waffle iron a second life as a Panini maker. And what did you put between the slices of bread that you subjected to this squeeze?!
