Aside from tortillas, I don’t think I have bought any type of bread since I got my bread machine a few months ago. Since I meal plan every week, I know in advance when we are going to need some type of bread so I plan to have time to make it earlier that day.
We had a bunch of extra turkey from Christmas so our plan was to make turkey and pesto paninis one night for dinner. I looked at a few recipes for panini bread online and found this one (sorry, I don’t have the original source!).
They were really easy to make and turned out so good! They had a hint of sweetness and a lighter texture than normal bread. We used them for paninis but this bread recipe could be used for any sandwich. In fact, one morning I just warmed it up and put some honey and butter on it and my daughter scarfed it down.
I will definitely be making these again soon!
