When it comes to food trucks, space is of the essence. With limited counters, food truck owners have had to get crafty with the equipment they choose to work with, but the panini press (also known as a sandwich grill) offers the perfect solution for creative cooks. Here are a few ways that cooks with small kitchens are using panini presses for more than just sandwiches.

1. Omelets

 Throw on the spinach, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper, close the press for about a minute, then fold your omelet together – quick and easy breakfast.

2. Hashbrowns

3. Salads

No, seriously; it’s a thing. Grilling heartier lettuces, like romaine, actually adds a smoky flavor and crisp to the salad that is delicious.

4. Meats

Think of it as a supped up George Foreman. Anything that grill can do, this one can do just as good, if not better. Meats to cook include, chicken, steak, salmon, hamburger, and bacon – yes, bacon my friend!

5. Vegetables

Sliced or not, throw those veggies on the panini press, close the lid and within minutes you’ll have perfectly grilled veggies.

6. Burritos and Quesadillas

Using a panini grill to warm up and toast burritos and quesadillas is an easy way to deliver mouthwatering flavors.

7. Pizza

You could close the panini press and make a perfectly grilled pizza, but the sauce makes a mess. Instead, keep the panini press open and let the flavors melt on top as the dough cooks.

8. Kebabs

9. Cheese

Yes, cheese between slices of bread is always great on a panini grill, but to get cheeses with a thick outer shell (like brie) melted on the inside a panini grill is the way to go.

10. Desserts
