Tuesday Blog Hop: Favorite Recipes

This week's Blog Hop Theme is "Favorite Recipes"

One of my all time favorite sandwiches used to be the simple Grilled Cheese. But when I had a panini sandwich one day, I had a new favorite! My best panini is a Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Panini--and it is so easy to make and even better to eat.

Ingredients:

2 ripe plum tomatoes
60z. (appx.) fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil leaes
salt and pepper to taste (about a 1/4 teaspoon each)
8 slices country style bread (to make 4 sandwiches)

We make these on our grill, so the first step is to get your grill hot.

While the grill is heating up, slice two ripe and cored plum tomatoes.

Next, slice up about 6oz. of fresh Mozzarella cheese (told ya this was easy, lol)

Mix about 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves with about a 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Place the tomato slices, cheese slices and basil on one slice of bread.

Then top with another slice of bread.

Place panini on your hot grill. Place a heavy skillet (cast iron works best) on top of the sandwich and grill appx. 7 to 8 minutes, turning once.

Bread should be toasted and brown on both sides.

Cut sandwiches in half and enjoy!!
