  1. Place the ingredients in the bread machine in this exact order and don’t stir: milk, beaten egg, 2 tablespoons butter, sugar, salt, flour, and quick rise yeast.
  2. Select dough setting. (Mine takes 90 minutes.)
  3. When cycle is complete, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it out into the shape of a rectangle. Use lots of flour to prevent sticking. Cut the dough into 8-10 rectangle-shaped pieces.
  4. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the microwave and brush the paninis with it.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
