Tasty Little Bites: Panini-inis!

Mmm, this is a tasty little post. It was Saturday about lunchtime and I wanted a little nibble. A baguette, an assortment of Taleggio, Rogue River Blue and Cheddar cheeses, prosciutto, and Medjool dates inspired these little bites.

In the same way that sliders are little burgers, I wanted to make miniature panini so that I could have a little taste of everything: panini-ini. So I fired up up panini grill, which was a wedding present!

Panini-ini Number One: Rogue River Blue cheese, sliced and pitted Medjool date, prosciutto

Panini-ini Number Two: Taleggio and Prosciutto

Panini-ini Number Three: Classic Cheddar cheese

And the results were delicious! The blue cheese, date and prosciutto was by far the best one!

Buon Appetito!

How fun! And tasty - I just tried the Rogue River Blue at a cheese tasting last week, it was so good. Great combinations!

I think I gain weight just reading your blog;-) It is making me motivated to go make the soup (for which I bought ingredients today)...thanks!

What is a panini maker?

I find that the george foreman grill makes good grilled sandwhiches...

I like sharp cheddar and apples or brie and cranberry.

A panini maker is a gadget that we randomly registered for at Williams-Sonoma and we use it all the time. I think it is similar to the George Foreman but we don't grill meat on it. It doesn't really have anyplace for the fat to go.
