Expert Tips

*To cook in skillet, heat 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sprayed sandwiches; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until toasted and cheese is melted.

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

No cooking spray? You can lightly brush the outsides of each sandwich with a little olive oil before cooking.

In Italian, the word "panini" just means "small bread" referring to a sandwich or roll. We use it to describe any delicious sandwich filled with veggies, cheese and sometimes meat that is grilled or cooked in a contact-type sandwich maker.
