When I think of my grandmother, the first thing that comes to mind is her delicious pies. The most memorable of them were her cabbage and egg pies and scallion and egg pies. As a child, I would always look forward to visiting her because she always had a piece of one of these freshly baked pies waiting for me. The crust of the pies had the perfect texture to complement the soft and tender cabbage or scallion mixed with creamy and slightly firm hard-boiled eggs. It was always slightly golden, with just the right amount of crunch.
My grandmother was a master in the kitchen. Watching her cook was like watching an artist at work. When I started making my own pies, I knew I had to incorporate my grandmother's recipes. I wanted to continue her legacy and bring her delicious pies to a new generation. That's when I adopted her scallion and egg pie recipe and used it as the inspiration for my panini pies. It was a way to honor my grandmother and her love for cooking.
Like my grandmother's classic cabbage and egg or scallion and egg pies, my panini pies have a creamy and savory filling. A slightly sweet and earthy flavor of cabbage or fresh and herbaceous note of scallion combined with crunchy panini crust is pure heaven.
Now, whenever I bake these panini pies, the aroma fills my kitchen with the same warmth and comfort that I felt as a child in my grandmother's kitchen. It's a wonderful feeling, and it's a testament to the power of food and memories.
If you've never tried these pies, you're missing out on a true comfort food. So, if you're looking for a delicious and comforting meal, give these panini pies a try. You won't regret it.
