Kitchen Gadgets, Are They Necessary?
I was web surfing and came across an article declaring the items that all kitchens must have. Among them was a Panini Grill.
Think back, when did you first hear of an appliance called the "Panini Grill", and were you hungry before it hit the marketplace, was it on Rachel Ray? This attractive lady was not even born when I started feeding people. Maybe it was not her......I am not here to do her harm,
She has a following, and I am not attempting to take that away from her, I just want to point out that you can get the same results with what you already have.
Panini is actually a type of bread.....Italian bread.........hum.......isn't Ms. Ray Italian? How convenient for the marketers.
Don't have those? Toast it in your trusty old Lodge cast iron skillet.
All the panini press does.................is give it grill marks........that's it folks.........how hard is it to flip a sandwich half over and cook the other side?
That's all, people..........make your sandwich the way you like it. Save your money, save your worry and have something good to eat.
Personally, I like grilled bread.........done on my trusty ole cast iron.......same skillet for over 20 years. It survived a house fire, three kids off to college, and countless moves.....and I married a traveling man, so I do mean countless. My granddaughter is none the wiser, she just eats the plain ole grilled cheese with a smile.
