  • panini bread search

    i had a vegetarian panini sandwich last weekend at the l.a county fair, it was unbelievably good. I went to my local ralphs to look for the bread, but they didnt have it. So now i'm hunting it down. Does anyone out there know of a place that sells panini bread in the L.A area

    Now you're just making me hungry -- and that's unfair. )

    "Panini" is a type of sandwich, usually grilled, not a type of bread - in fact panini is Italian for "sandwich." Were you actually looking for the sandwiches instead? There are a couple of places in Downtown Disney that sell paninis.

    If you're actually looking for a type of bread, then could you maybe describe the bread used in your particular panini? At least in Italy, most paninis are made with simple white or egg bread.

    Doing a quick search, I found this recipe which mixes it up a little bit and uses pizza dough, and a third that just calls for "large bread rolls". I also imagine that Foccacia, although not usually used for this purpose, might make a great panini, since it would grill well. If you have a bread maker (or can follow a recipe - it's not hard), you can make your own:

    Herbed Focaccia Bread:
    1 C. water
    1/4 C. olive oil
    1 t. salt
    1 T. sugar
    2 t. (total) mixed herbs (rosemary, oregano, basil)
    3 C. flour
    1 scant T. yeast

    -Additional olive oil & herbs, kosher salt for toppings
    Use bread machine dough cycle per machine instructions.
    After the cycle is finished, shape dough into a flat, rough circle on an oiled (pam) baking sheet (may sprinkle baking sheet with cornmeal). Lightly coat top of focaccia with olive oil. Push your fingertips into the top, creating craters. Sprinkle top with kosher salt & additional herbs. Cover with clean/dry dish towel & let rise 30 -40 minutes. Oven at 375 degrees and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep a close eye on this, every oven is different. Cool on a large wire rack.

    Good eating!

      I am not sure if you have Safeways in LA but they have a panini selection that they will grill fresh for you. My kids love the 3 cheese kind.

            You can get some super tasty focaccia bread (and lots of other specialty breads) at Trader Joe's. Great prices there too!

                    You can use any bread for paninis; granted, the gourmet breads taste better and are more fun.

                    What you NEED is a panini press. I received one as a wedding gift, and it makes the best, tastiest sandwiches. You can get at any major retailer.

                      you don't really need a panini press. All, you need is a grill pan and another pan you can weight down on top of it. We have even made them in the george foreman grill....I love food tv, they have alot of great tips on there.
