Note: potatoes were boiled first, then grilled.
I finally got something to grill on, nothing fancy or big, just a simple Breville panini grill, that I lovely call "my crocodile".

As soon as I unpacked it from the box, I put it to work: I was craving grilled vegetables all summer long. In went eggplants (aubergine), zucchinis (courgette), and jalapeno peppers.

Then it was time for a grilled cheese sandwich with grilled vegetables and grilled onions.

And for dinner I made grilled potatoes with smoked salt and cilantro to accompany lentil and vegetables entree.

Some time ago I received a free samples from Ariosto and have been trying it on different vegetables, legumes, and meats.
I need to confess: this is my second Breville panini grill. First one I sold when we were moving cross-country: big mistake on my side!
Each time I saw this grill in a magazine or at Williams Sonoma store, I would blame myself for selling it. About a year ago Breville came out on the market with a new version, 25% larger and improved (although to me there wasn't much to improve, I loved my old crocodile!), and I couldn't find a peace before I had it again.
So when I received a Williams Sonoma gift card for my birthday, I knew what it's going to be, and a happy smile shone on my face.
My favorite features of Breville panini grill:
- adjustable height control of the top plate;
- adjustable angle of the bottom plate (wonderful to drain all the fats from grilling eggplants);
- super easy to clean.
