If you love sandwiches toasted in a panini press, then build your sandwich and add a thin coat of mayonnaise to the outside of each piece of bread in addition to whatever dressing you put on the inside. Heat two skillets, put your sandwich in the first, and top it with the second hot skillet. Press or add a weight to flatten your sandwich even more. The mayonnaise makes the bread toast up beautifully and of course the melted cheese of a panini press sandwich is always amazing.
Pull out all your toasting equipment – and since toasting can be such a messy endeavor – give it all a clean. Donate what you no longer need and put back what you intend to keep.
In our tiny house we have a toaster oven instead of a range oven, so we use that to toast or melt some cheese and even to bake off a tray of cookies now and then (keeping the rest of the dough in the freezer until we were ready for a few more fresh warm cookies). In our much larger Tiny House Foodie kitchen there is no space for something like a toaster or toaster oven on the counter top, so we use the skillet method to make toast. I’m not sure what we’ll do in the Skoolie, once it is finished. That depends mostly on whether or not there is a oven in the space and I don’t know that yet. We’re still in the design stage of the build. As it turns out, I’m working at this right along with you.
Thanks so much for following along with this series, I appreciate it. We finish up this series this week with a conversation about the microwave and then one final session is sort of a “catch all” about the other appliances you may also have in your kitchen. We’re on the home stretch. Well done on all your hard work to make your kitchen a place of simplicity and order!
I’m Carmen Shenk, the Tiny House Foodie, reminding you that we can #LiveTiny #EmbraceSimplicity and still #EatWell. Thanks for watching, I really appreciate it!
