no need to have a panini press, just buy a brick,boil it to clean it, then cover with foil, place on griddle to warm up as your preparing the sandwhichs, just use a pot holder to lift, it will get HOT

Oh boy this sounds so delicious! However, most of the ingredients are not something that I could even find at my local grocery store. Too specialized, too unusual, too hard to find for me. I don't live anywhere near the places you'd have to shop, therefore its waaaaay too impractical. Thanks though, wish I could make it but, no.
