|You really only need a heavy grated pan with a heavy dish to press on top to make a panini no need for expensive makers!|
There's nothing to it!
Slices of whole milk mozzarella cheese
Fresh Basil leaves washed
Plum tomato slices
salt, pepper, dried oregano, garlic powder, to taste
Cast iron grated pan
heavy weighted plate
Spray the pan with cooking oil and heat to high. Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. I sprinkle mine with oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper lightly. Place two to three slices of mozzarella on the bread, top with sliced tomatoes. Grill on one side till brown pressing down with a heavy plate. Flip. Brown on the other side. When done cool for a few minutes not to get burned. Open the sandwich and place the basil inside the sandwich. Be careful it's hot! (I found basil stays nice, bright, fresh looking and doesn't look brown when waiting till the end to add it, that's the reason I don't cook with the basil inside.
