My Cheddar, Spinach and Tomato Panini
One of my favorite foods at Starbucks is their Roasted Mozzarella Panini. It is so delicious with a cup of coffee, and it can be enjoyed at any time of the day. For the longest, I had been planning to make my version of a Panini, and I finally did! I did not roast my tomatoes, nor did I use Mozzarella. Instead, I used sharp cheddar and sliced Roma tomatoes. For the bread, I used Pepperidge Farm's Whole Grain Honey Wheat.
Probably not necessary, but I slightly toasted my bread before adding the sliced tomatoes.
Then, I topped the tomatoes with fresh spinach and sprinkled it with Ms. Dash (table blend).
Afterwards, I placed the Panini in my George Foreman's grill for about 5 minutes - long enough for the spinach to wilt and the cheese to melt.
Yes - that piece of bread is considered the butt of the bread or the end piece. Sometimes, I'm frugal like that. Eating the butt of the bread does not alter the taste one bit!
The next time I make this sandwich I will add chives and parsley. Have you ever made your own Panini? If so, what did you put on it?
