After that, it’s really all assembly and I was looking to pair and match flavors in the sandwich that would carry over with ease to the soup. For instance, I know avocado goes great with bacon and pineapple, so I simply added some crispy bacon and hence, I made the jam. Well, avocados, bacon and pineapple also go great with tomato soup, so if you take a taste of soup and have a bite of the sandwich your mouth will explode with flavor. It is all about pairing and complimenting flavors so that everything you eat on a dish has the perfect balance and is bursting with flavor. To finish it off, simply spray the Hamilton Beach panini maker and cook the sandwiches. It literally crusts off the bread beautifully and beeps at you once it’s finished cooking, which is perfect since you will be doing a few other things and may forget about them ☺.
