This year I planted six basil plants and four tomato plants that are all thriving. So I am putting them to good use. My favorite lunch these days is a tomato basil panini. It is simple yet divine!
I made them for my 4th of July barbecue as little appetizers. They are cute this way as well as super yummy. I just cut the bread with a round cookie cutter and bought the round mozz.
Here is what you need:
Tomatoes - sliced
Fresh Basil - whole or shredded
Soft Mozzarella - sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Garlic salt (optional, but I love to sprinkle on just a dash)
Assemble and grill in the panini press until cheese is slightly melted and grill marks are on the bread.
