A few weeks ago I posted about my shopping trip to Walmart and the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® light spread I picked up. I was able to use an awesome website called It’s Good To Know and found some great recipes that used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® in them.
Since then I’ve made a few dishes and have incorporated our secret ingredient -I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® – without any fuss from my husband. His favorite recipe so far has been a simple panini I made for him and the kids for lunch one day. And we don’t have a panini press.
Being able to use the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread instead of butter has made these paninis even easier to make! No crumbs everywhere or hard, cold butter stuck to one corner and not budging. Just smooth, easy spreading! If you’re interested in finding out how you can make a panini without a panini press check out my YouTube video tutorial below.
The kids like to call them “fancy sandwiches” and love that I can switch up the ingredients inside to make different combinations. Served with a tasty side of veggies or a nice garden salad and it’s the perfect healthy meal! Plus it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare!
How to Make a Panini Without a Panini Press
What You’ll Need:
- Your favorite bread
- I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread (original or light – available at Walmart)
- deli meat of choice
- cheese of choice
- any additions (pickles, spinach, onions, tomatoes, etc)
What You Do:
Watch the YouTube video below (you can subscribe to the Simmworks Family’s YouTube Channel here) to find out how I easily made these paninis without a panini press!
What you end up with is a delicious, crispy-on-the-outside-gooey-on-the-inside sandwich that any kid (or husband) would love!
Plus you can feel good about serving these to your family because I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® has that fresh butter taste with 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter. And it’s a lot easier to spread over your bread slices than a stick of butter too! Win-win!
Bring your family together this summer with these delicious made-at-home paninis. They’re a quick and healthy option for your family and are easily adapted to everyone’s tastes! I’m considering making a peanut butter and banana panini next! A little sweet to go with the savory.
Think my daughter (the peanut butter queen) would like that? Mmmm… maybe a little nutella… No, that might negate the nutritional benefits of the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® though. And it definitely isn’t Nutrisystem friendly!
Cooking your favorite recipes using Unilever buttery spreads is a deliciously smart move. With 0g trans fats per serving, less saturated fat and fewer calories than butter, cholesterol-free spreads are a better option.
