Chinese Panini



A fusion of Italian and Oriental cuisine, the Chinese Panini is a sumptuous snack of Panini bread, grilled with a filling that combines juicy veggies, crunchy fried noodles and tongue-tickling sauces.

The result is a Panini that will surprise you pleasantly with its amazing mouth-feel and vibrant flavour. Panini is an Italian grilled sandwich made with breads like baguette, and never with sliced bread. If you cannot find a variety of Panini bread, you can use hot dog rolls instead.

Be generous with the butter so that you get a good rich taste. A sweet, tangy and spicy treat, the Chinese Panini is best enjoyed fresh, while the crispy and juicy textures are in tact. You can also try other Panini recipes like the Tomato Basil Mozzarella Panini or Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Panini .
