Use this easy sandwich recipe as a template, and customize it to your liking. Use hollowed-out focaccia or ciabatta, or try different herbs and cheese.
4 slices ciabatta
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 ounce (2 thin slices) prosciutto
1 plum tomato, cut into ¼-inch slices
4 fresh basil leaves
2 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
Preheat grill in the closed position. Brush one side of each slice of bread with the oil. Lay 2 slices of bread on a work surface, oiled side down.
Place sandwiches on the bottom grill plate and close, applying medium pressure to the handle for 30 seconds. Grill panini for 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is nicely toasted. Let rest for 1 to 2 minutes.
