I’ve mentioned my Cuisinart Griddler 4-in-1 panini maker previously, but I’m not sure I’ve conveyed just how in love with this thing I truly am. So far I’ve used it to make panini sandwiches, pancakes (several times) and french toast. Every time I use it, I love it more.
Now I find that I am looking for excuses to use it. I’m tweaking recipes to make them appropriate for my griddler. I think I’m addicted.
Hi, my name is Valerie and I’m a griddler-a-holic (“hi, Valerie!”).
The latest experiment came out quite delicious. I wanted to use the ingredients of our favorite crab cake but make it into a panino. My reasoning was that the crunchy bread would take the place of the crispy coating of the crab cake. It worked like a charm.
You can easily substitute your own favorite crab cake recipe, but I highly recommend this one. The chile-garlic mayonnaise is great for other sandwiches or dipping too, so make a little extra to keep around. It is easy to adjust the level of spiciness to your own taste.
We found these sandwiches quite filling. Leftovers were just as good the next day – warming them in the toaster oven on 400 for 7-10 minutes returned the bread to warm and crispy, just like new.
