The Patriotic: Red, White, Blue Panini

This year, I’ll be celebrating my first July 4th comeback in SF. Yes, after 4 years living in Southern California, we finally decided to take big steps by moving here. Living in SF has always been lovely. I love the breezy weather with a touch of sunshine, though Summer time can be painful sometime.

In order to celebrate 4th of July this year, I decided to try this recipe. The idea came when one of our bridal party sent me Grill/ Panini Cuisine Art set for our wedding gift and I was so psyched about it. I’ve been saving up to get this one, but this is not priority plus we don’t have enough room, so I figured this can wait until about 1-2 years later. The idea was also getting a real grill set for outdoor patio. Anywho, since this came in way early than expected, so why not give it a try. I did my search about breakfast panini and Paula Deen’s recipe came across my mind. Well ok, that sounds pretty simple and entertaining, right? So, if you’re a sweet tooth, you definitely should try this one.


  • Strawberries (depending on how big/ small, sliced into 3 or 4)
  • Blueberries
  • 4 slices whites bread
  • Marshmallows, cut in halves
  • Butter, room temperature
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-low.
  2. On a slice of bread, add a layer of marshmallow, topped with a layer of sliced strawberries, continue until the bread is covered.
  3. Add blueberries in between marshmallow and strawberries, then cover with a slice of bread. Press them together and making it a sandwich.
  4. Apply a light layer of butter to each side of sanwiches.
  5. Place each sandwich on the pre-heated grill for 2 minutes per side.
  6. When done, cute each sandwich in half, diagonally and dust with powdered sugar.
