Use whatever bread you choose, but I wouldn’t recommend rye like I used. (Hey, I kinda rhymed!) I added some of my Immoral Mushrooms to my panini, but you can certainly do without. That's the joy of a panini... you can be creative without TOO much chance for disaster. ;o)
- Preheat your panini press/grill.
- Lightly baste the bread slices on the OUTSIDE with olive oil.
- Spread the INSIDE of each slice with mayonnaise.
- Set one slice on the press, oiled side down. On that, layer the following: arugula, bacon, tomato and cheese.
- Top with the other bread slice, mayonnaise facing the inside of the sandwich.
- Close the panini press and check for desired doneness in 5 minutes.
