Recreating your favorite restaurant menu items at home is not only economical; it’s a great way to get the family excited about homemade meals again. One of our favorite lunch menu items to make at home is the panini sandwich.

There are an infinite number of options for making a great Panini sandwich, but the one kitchen essential you need every time is a great panini press. We love the Calphalon Panini Grill for whipping up authentic-tasting panini creations at home. It also doubles as a great non-stick grill for fish, veggies, and meats!

Looking for a new recipe to try out this weekend? Check out this delicious and healthy vegetarian panini:

Panzanella Panini* by Mrs. Williams
