This sandwich is for those who don’t have a ton of time and don’t want to sacrifice on flavor. Over the weekend, I was looking for something to throw together in between doing laundry and cleaning…two of my favorite things (yes, that’s sarcasm). I was also going out to dinner that night (starting the birthday celebrations early!) so I didn’t want it to be too heavy. I happened to have these ingredients on hand so in to a sandwich they went!
- 3-4 slices of mozzarella cheese
- 3-4 slices of tomato (vine tomatoes are my favorite but you can use whatever you have)
- Italian bread
- Fresh basil
- Adobo (you should have this stocked in your kitchen at all times, seriously. It can be used to liven the flavor on almost any recipe.)
- Feel free to add balsamic dressing as well. I didn’t have any to use this time around.
As you would imagine – layer the mozzarella, tomato and basil and add a light sprinkling of the Adobo on the bread. I have a handy dandy panini press, but you can also use a pan on the stove – think “grilled cheese”. I left mine on the press for about 6-7 minutes, just enough to melt the cheese and soften the tomatoes. And it was all done just before the dryer buzzer went off…
Happy Eating, XO.
