This story is a tale of how onions sizzle and sweeten. How baby bellas brown to perfection. And the way my heart pitter-patters when melted cheese stretches between two halves of a sandwich.
Alight! Now i’ve got your attention.
The leading characters: Ms. Sweet Caramelized Onions and Mr. Meaty Baby Bella Mushrooms.
Oh and of course the real reason we’ll all be scarfing down loads of these paninis. Melty, ooey, gooey provolone cheese.
This sandwich is oozing with flavor. And don’t even think to not try it. Even if you’re not a mushroom person. You will be after this. You. will. be. after. this. Really.Here’s what the onions should look like after 20 minutes. After the first 5 minutes, add in the sugar. Continue to cook until the 20 minutes are up. Add the thyme, garlic and the Worcestershire sauce. Cook for another 2 minutes.
Mushrooms after they’ve been cooked for 10 minutes. Next we add the red pepper flakes and black pepper. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Add the mushroom broth (or beef broth) one tablespoon at a time (4 tablespoons in total).
Sprinkle with parsley. Hear the sizzle. The butter as it slowly takes in the flavors of garlic and thyme. The touch of heat with the red pepper flakes. You want a bite. You know you do.
Lets make a panini!
Into the panini press it goes! Or in my case… my George Foreman. But that’s not really fun to say.
