You say Panini, I say Yum!

We love, love, love our new Panini press! Here's a delicious quickie that will have you imagining yourself eating this at an open cafe in Roma!

Homemade French bread adds to the rustic simplicity

The front so you can see the layers of Yum
Wish I was in Rome Panini
1 chicken breast, grilled
2 slices thick french bread
2 oz Fresh mozzarella
1 Tomato
1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp EVOO
Fresh Basil & Oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder

In a small bowl mix the Balsamic, EVOO, herbs, garlic powder and salt.  Brush vinegar mixture on the inside of the slices of bread.  Layer the chicken, tomato slices, mozzarella in between the slices. Place on press and grill until cheese is melted and the bread is crunchy.

Alternate version: Leave the chicken out and have a nice Caprese Panini.
