There are a lot of elements that go into an Arrosto sandwich. Although not as good as a freshly bagged version, you can still enjoy our paninis at home on Sunday or your leftovers after the fact. Our pro tips:
Be sure to remove the bread from the meat and toppings. Place on a plate and heat for about 60-90 seconds. Then place everything onto the bread and microwave for another 15 seconds. This should give you the best possible outcome for enjoying a quickly reheated Arrosto Panini.
Place the entire Arrosto panini on an oven safe tray and heat at 400 degrees for approx. 12-18 minutes. This will give you a heat that will evenly reheat your sandwich and return it to it’s roasty toasty goodness.
Our personal favorite way to reheat our delicious paninis. Place a cast iron pan on a low burner and brush with olive oil. Place your sandwich on a low heat and cover with a lid for about 8 minutes (the more stuffed your sandwich is the longer it will take). When you start to hear some sizzle after the 8 minutes, brush the other side of the sandwich with olive oil and flip. Replace the cover and continue on low until the sandwich is heated through. Remove the lid and cook to your desired level of crispy. Close your eyes, take a bite, and just try to keep that smile off your face.
Sure you could get a freshly filled cannoli on a Saturday right before close and hope it will still be crispy when you want to enjoy it on Sunday, but lets be real. You’re going to eat that cannoli the second you get home because they are delicious when they are crunchy on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside, and you just don’t want to take a chance on that quality. Our pro move here: Ask for your cannoli cream on the side and then break up your shell and enjoy like chips and dip!
