Panini Rolls for World Bread Day

panini roll 5027 R

I can't believe another year has passed and World Bread Day is here again!

As I've said before, I bake tons of bread and here is my recipe for simple panini rolls, which make an appearance at least once a week. The best way to eat them is toasted, with melted cheese, onion and tomatoes. Fresh basil leaves are good too, only I forgot to put them in this time.
Don't have a panini press? Me neither! I grill (broil) the split paninis with the fillings first. Close them and pop them onto a pre-heated griddle pan to make the outsides crispy and get the lovely grill marks on them. Flatten them while in the pan by pressing down on them with a heat proof spatula or press them down with a clean flat saucepan lid.

Panini Bread Rolls

1 sachet (7g) quick rising yeast
600g/1lb 5oz strong white bread flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
370ml/13 fl oz water (approx)
1 beaten egg to glaze, optional

Put all the ingredients into the bread machine in the correct order.
When it comes to the water, you may need less or more, keep an eye on it and add as necessary to make a smooth, soft dough.

When the dough is ready, cut it into about 10 pieces and knead each one into a long roll shape. Flatten with your hand or use a little rolling pin - you want them fairly flat.

Cover and leave to rise until they have doubled in size, brush with beaten egg (optional) and bake in a pre-heated oven 180ºC/350ºF for about 14-16 minutes until golden brown.

Snooky doodle said...

Yasmeen said...

Grilled panini with cheese look sinfully good!

Anne said...

Mmmm they look very edible!!

I bought some dried yeast sachets the other day so this gives me a good excuse to make a mess of the kitchen this weekend and dust off the old panini press!

Jan said...

Yummy looking panini Nic!

nicisme said...

Anudivya - thank you, I love melted cheese.

Jules - the griddle pan is quite effective, do you have one?

Sam - they are so quick and easy!

Raquel - I must look into that GF grill,

Marysol - lol, another fan of melted deliciousness!

Snooky Doodle - I try not to eat so much bread, but having teens in the house makes it hard.

Yasmeen - thank you and welcome!

Anne - lucky you to have a panini press!

Jan - thanks!

Beth said...

I love paninis but have never made them. They look gorgeous

Anne said...

Hi Nic - I won it in a xmas raffle about 3 years ago! is great looking glass thingy http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russell-Hobbs-10810-Glass-Panini/dp/B0002VYJ9K but takes up to much room to keep out unfortunately :( ... but I think I will have to pull it out to make these as they look droolworthy!

Sheryl said...

Absolutely delicious!!! I love those kind of panini! :D
Have a nice week end!

Parker said...

Love paninis, I will have to try them on the griddle as it makes such pretty lines.

Tartelette said...

I have not had breakfast yet and all I can think about is this yummy cheesy panini!! The bread looks awesome!

Brilynn said...

I'm definitely having a panini for lunch after seeing this! Looks great!

Lisa said...

That sandwich looks warm and delicious. There is nothing like simple fresh homemade rolls to take sandwiches to a new level!

Grace said...

well, whaddya know--there are special rolls for the panini press? i had no idea. the rolls alone are beautiful, but the resulting sandwich is downright gorgeous. fantastic. :)

Jules said...

Nic - I have a cast iron griddle pan. Weighs a ton, but cooks fab steaks!

nicisme said...

Beth - time to give them a go!

Anne - how wonderful, it looks like a really good press. You'd better get it out and dust it off!

Sheryl - thanks! Hope you have a good one too.

Parker - that's the only reason for using the griddle pan, they still taste the same, but I agree the lines do look nice.

Tartlette - I think we are going to have to do the blog rounds after lunch, all I can think about is macarons!

Brilynn - what sort of filling do you like? I might have one with some blue cheese for my lunch.

Lisa - I agree, you really can't beat homemade rolls.

Grace - ha ha, isn't that funny - I'm sure I saw some panini buns in the store, they were kind of flat and long and I think they even had those little lines on already!!!

Jules - mine is a cast iron one too, very heavy, but what a shame we don't eat beef in this house anymore. I used to love a decent steak!

Susan/Wild Yeast said...

Lovely rolls, and such a delicious sandwich!

Dee said...

I love panini sandwiches, especially when they ooze cheese like yours. I really should give this a go.

Bellini Valli said...

There is such great satisfaction in making your own bread from start to finish.... it sounds delicious:D

Angela said...

Lovely panini Nic, bread is my weakness and I am always looking for new ones to try. These will be next.

Passionate About Baking said...

Fantastic...just couldn't wait for the picture to download! I don't have a press either & make mine the same way as you do. I'm gonna make these soon...very soon. Love the way they look! Delicious!

Those panini rolls look good and so does that panini!

Boy those look perfect and delicious. Nothing like fresh baked bread to make a great sandwich!

Never actually seen a panini bread recipe. This is great..
I use 2 cast iron skillets to press my paninis.

Forgot to say I made these the other week but improvised and used stoneground wholemeal flour and made them by hand with a little help from the kenwood chef, didnt end up using as panini rolls but they made very good bread rolls!

The other half was very happy with them! :)

Kristen said...

I have been on the search for a great homemade bread for panini's & Jules turned me on to this recipe. It was absolutely perfect!
I had to use a bit more flour but they were so simple to make.
Thanks for sharing this recipe!

nicisme said...
