Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
  • tip 2
    No cooking spray? You can lightly brush the outsides of each sandwich with a little olive oil before cooking.
  • tip 3
    In Italian, the word "panini" just means "small bread" referring to a sandwich or roll. We use it to describe any delicious sandwich filled with veggies, cheese and sometimes meat that is grilled or cooked in a contact-type sandwich maker.
