Do you want a break from soup, chili or the ‘usual’ Halloween fare? But also something that allows YOU to enjoy the party and guests as they come Trick or Treating, or for the FUN planned for the evening?
This is the perfect answer! A Panini Bar!!! Everyone makes their own, and to their liking, leaving you free to enjoy the party. I’ll show you how and give you a few tips too for a successful Panini Bar!
Halloween Make Your Own Panini Bar
Deli meat: turkey, ham, roast beef; any of your choice
Sliced cheese: provolone, cheddar, swiss; any of your choice
Small Ciabatta rolls, or any crusty rolls work really well. Small is best to avoid waste. It’s also a good idea to have gluten free variety if you know that will be useful.
Condiments: variety of mustards, mayos and other sandwich toppings
Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions – as desired
Have the ingredients ready for people to make their own panini. Making sure the meat, cheese and condiments particularly, are over ice, or kept chilled – never left out to spoil during the course of the evening or party.
When people arrive, or are ready to eat, they assemble their panini to their liking with the meat and cheese they want.
Simply put it together as desired, then into the panini maker/press and heat completely through.
*** Before heating through – or after, whichever is preferred – add in any of the condiments and toppings desired.
EASY and everyone enjoys the party!
Have condiments such as:
As guests put their sandwich together, they could eat it cold or heat/grill it on the panini maker and ta-da! Magically they had their own scrumptious meal to eat as they visited, or to take on the go.
Just use whatever is available in your price range and relax, they’ll make their own dinner – which is always the best part!!!
