This is the second waffle iron panini post. For the first, click here.
As with a lot of things on this blog, I can't take any credit for this one. In fact, when I think about it, this post incorporates ideas from everyone but me.
It's important to realize is that the sweetness here comes from the filling, since the bread itself is neither cakelike nor sweet.
When I mentioned in passing to stresscake that I was planning on chocolate bread + almond butter + jam to accompany the savory waffled panini, she mentioned mascarpone. And I knew she was right.
I plopped mascarpone on top of a slice of chocolate bread and spooned over it a dollop of strawberry jam.
If you don't have the time or inclination to make the chocolate bread, use a brioche-type white bread and fill it with mascarpone and some chocolate shavings, chocolate chips, or just a dusting of cocoa powder. Don't have mascarpone? Try cream cheese.
I might love sweet panini even more than I do savory. But if you want to try combining them, there's always bacon and chocolate panini.
