Transcript:Tomato and Mozzarella Grilled Panini RecipeHi, I'm Rachel Edelman, for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make grilled panini sandwiches.
Mozzarella Grilled Panini IngredientsFor this recipe you will need:
- 8 slices mozzarella cheese
- 1 large tomato cut into slices
- fresh basil
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- a brush
- and cutting knives
Heat the GrillFirst, preheat a grill to medium heat. If you don't have a grill, you could use a griddle or a frying pan.
Assemble the PaniniCut a loaf of bread so you have two slices for each sandwich. I'm going to make a cheese and tomato panini with fresh mozzarella and a plum tomato. Slice the cheese about a quarter of an inch thick. Place the slices on half of your bread. Next slice the plum tomato. Add the tomato on top of the cheese.
For extra flavor, I'm adding fresh basil. Slice a few leaves of basil. Sprinkle the pieces over the tomato. If you have any pesto, you can spread it to the inside of the bread as well. Place the top piece of bread on each of the panini.
Grill the PaniniBrush both sides of the panini with oil and place them on the grill. Cook each side of the panini for about 4 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and serve.
