The answer to any next-day-leftovers from a big meal: make it into a panini. For example, if you're tired of eating leftover roast beef for days after your dinner party, use a panini press to create a whole different meal. Paninis are also an excellent way to have a fun and interactive meal, much like a "DIY Pizza Night" or Ice Cream Sundae Nights. Williams-Sonoma's French Dip Panini recipe is a perfect example of adding a twist to standard ingredients. Think about cheeses, meats, veggies, sauces, and types of bread to customize your sandwich.
Don't forget about sides dishes- Salad, onion rings, french fries (even wine) are acceptable sides!
These hot sandwiches are also a fun way to get creative- all you really need is bread, a panini press, and your fillings!
