Our Best Grilled Sandwiches And Panini Recipes (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Picture an ordinary sandwich. For the sake of this example, let's say it's a classic ham and cheese. Now picture that same sandwich grilled. Which one do you prefer? For us, grilled sandwiches are the end-all, be-all of sandwiches. Whether you call your grilled sandwich a panino (panini is plural) or a toastie, they all offer the same amount of immense enjoyment. There's just something so special when you have a warm sandwich in your hands with golden, crunchy bread and melty cheese oozing out the edges.

If you're in need of ideas, we've got some amazing recipes that all put your grill, griddle or panini press to good use. And don't worry if you don't have a panini press -- feel free to use a flat griddle or a skillet. You might, however, need a heavy weight to press down your sandwich while it grills, so use another skillet with canned food for weights or a foil-covered brick.
