Gluten-Free Waffle Panini and a Contest!
May 18, 2012
If we're friends on Facebook, you might have already seen my "waffle-panini." Here's the story:
Greg and I own a waffle iron and a panini press that look identical when closed. About a week or so ago, I asked him to heat the panini press. He accidentally grabbed the waffle iron and preheated it. Since I was busy assembling sandwiches, I didn't notice his mistake---until I opened the iron to make our sandwiches.
Since I was hungry. Wait. Let me clarify. I was HUNGRY. The kind of hungry that I call "grumpy hungry." Oh, you know that hunger? Since you do, you'll understand what I did next: I decided to put our sandwiches into the waffle iron since I didn't want to wait the, oh, five minutes to heat the panini press! You know what happened?
A delicious sandwich happened! The cavities of the waffle iron left crispy, toasty squares all over the sandwich! What I thought would be a mistake sandwich, turned into a great success. If you have a waffle iron, you must try this!
This got me thinking. Have you experienced any "happy accidents" in the kitchen? Tell me your story in the comments and you could win a copy of my new book, "How to Cook Gluten-Free."

I'm sure this would work with any panini. That night I made turkey paninis with provolone and artichoke hearts. Here's how to make 'em. Adjust the ingredient quantity to suit the number of folks you are feeding.
Artichoke hearts, quartered (You can buy the quartered or do it yourself.)
Sharp provolone, sliced thin
Smoked turkey bread, sliced thin
