Delicious Panini

Oh MANZO do I LOVE a good panini  Have you ever had one? Made one of your own? Panini makers are affordable and terrific for one person or for a party. Everyone can make it just they way they like a sandwich and hot too!
You’ve got to try my version with caramelized onions, roasted bella mushrooms, many choices or condiments are great. To take it over the top and equal to one of those expense hooty-fluuty restaurants, serve with my Jalapeno & Bell Pepper Jelly AND easy homemade Basil Mayo. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!
