Nothing tastes better than a warm panini off the griddle. With summer here and tomatoes in season, I felt it would be appropriate to share my Caprese Paninis. It is all the yummy ingredients of a caprese salad pressed into a sandwich. Can't get any better than that! Here is what you'll need:
I first want to talk about the bread. I have tried lots of breads for paninis and I have found the round loaves to be the best. They are dense and crusty; perfect for a panini press. The softer the bread, the less likely it will hold it's form in the press.
I sliced my bread and drizzled olive oil on the side I laid on the press. I then sliced my mozzarella and placed it across the bread.
Next I sliced my tomatoes and drizzled them heavily in balsamic vinegar. You should probably be smarter than me (very easy to do) and just pour some balsamic vinegar and a little red onion in a bowl with the tomatoes and let them infuse all the flavor.
Then you are ready to eat! These sandwiches are great for lunch as well as dinner. I hope you enjoyed my recipe and feel free to pin to your "food" board on pinterest! :)
