Does anyone know how to make the bun taste like it has been pressed, without using a presser? Hope that makes sense. :blush: TIA :)

I am not sure totally what you are asking but...I wrap a clean fireplace brick with foil and use it to weigh down a sandwich in a skillet. A kind of homemade panini press.

Thanks :) We don't have any fireplace bricks either. Not much need for them here. :sunny: I guess we'll just have cold buns, until I get a sandwich presser. That would probably be easier to find around here than the brick. It's a great idea though. :)

Instead of a brick, you could use a cast iron skillet to weigh the sandwich down.

Naturally, I don't have one of those either. :rotfl: That I'm sure I can find here though. Thanks :)

Just so we're all on the same page, I'm talking about pressing a bun like you would have with a pressed cuban sandwich. It makes the bread crunchy & warm on the outside, but it's still soft on the inside. I hope that makes more sense than my OP. :blush: I'm not sure I understand what I'm trying to say. :p Anyway, is this what you guys are thinking of also? Thanks again :)

You could put it on a baking pan in a hot oven. The outside should toast up and the inside stay soft.

tarheelmjfan, if you could put the sandwich in a skillet--place a flat cooky sheet on top--then weigh it down with a couple heavy cans. That may do the trick. :scratchin

That just might work. :thumbsup2 I'll give it a try the next time I make sandwiches.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't have one of those either. :blush: I do have a fairly well stocked kitchen, honest I do. :rotfl:
