Three cheese panini

For the cheese lovers we have this choice of panini fillings in which we will use three different and very tasty cheeses to cheese everything up a little. To make them, we need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 baguette
  • 1/2 tomato
  • Butter
  • 3 grams of goat cheese
  • 3 pieces of brie
  • 2 slices of cheese to melt
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
  • Sea salt
  • Oregano

The first thing we do is turn on the oven to go building up the temperature we need. In the meantime, we will melt the butter in a pan or microwave and, when ready, slap it all over some open bread, in the part of the crumb. Yum, yum. Be generous with this as it will give a texture and delicious creaminess to the food.

Then, place cheese to melt on each slice and then we will wash the tomatoes and cut them into thin slices. Place them on top of the cheese. The next step is to cut the goat cheese and distribute it over the panini, do the same with the brie cheese.

When you have it mounted, sprinkle the sesame, then the oregano. Put it on an oven tray and in the oven, leaving it to cook for 10 minutes or until you see the cheese melts. Delicious and very easy!

Panini with goat cheese and anchovies

We will now offer another delicious panini recipe that is just as fast and that adds an exquisite umami ingredient straight from the seas: anchovies. This recipe is perfect for passionate adults who adore anchovies as its flavor intensifies with the heat of the oven. You'll need:

  • 1/2 baguette
  • 3 dried tomatoes in oil
  • Oil
  • 3 grams of goat cheese
  • Anchovies (to taste)

The first step is to preheat the oven at a temperature of 180 °C (356°F) to get it ready for baking. Then we will cut 2 or 3 slices of goat cheese, as we want, and we cut the loaf in half so that the two halves remain open.

Slap a splash of olive oil on both sides and then add the goat cheese, dried tomatoes and above, add those anchovies (put as many as you want, but too many will kill off the taste of the other ingredients and that wouldn't be a happy moment for anyone).

Once it's ready, toss the paninis in an oven tray or dish and pop them in for 10 minutes in the oven or until you see the melted cheese swirling around. They're ready to be served! Enjoy a delicious dish in so little time. If you're a vegetarian, you can substitute the anchovies with some Vegetarian Umami paste!

Chicken panini with pesto

If you are a lover of Italian food, this panini that we offer is something that surely you'll love and cherish. So that the result is even more gourmet, a good idea is that the bread you use is not normal bread but rather a focaccia. This way, you get a different dining experience and a high level of cultural insight. You?ll need:

  • Focaccia
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • cooked chicken cut into squares
  • green pepper, chopped
  • Chopped onion
  • Grated cheese

Before you start doing this, we will have to start cooking chicken in a pot with hot water or, if you prefer a touch more, then grill the chicken to add a new tinge of flavor. Then, when the chicken is ready, cut it into squares to be added with the other ingredients that we will use for this panini.

When we have all the ingredients prepared, cut the focaccia bread and add all the ingredients with the sauce. In each slice, add an equal mix of pieces of chicken, green pepper, onion and cheese. We can add more of a product if we want to intensify the flavor but it's recommended that there be more or less the same portions.

Once ready, pop the panini in the preheated oven and let it cook for about 5 or 10 minutes. When we see that the cheese is melted, we can take it out and enjoy a dish made in Italy.
