My son, Jeffrey, found a little vegetarian café near his college and took me there. I've now become addicted to their food and especially love their paninis. I saw this recipe and it looks like it will be very similar to a panini they make.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling on medium.
  2. Divide plum tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, salt and pepper evenly among four bread slices. Top with remaining 4 slices of bread.
  3. Place 2 panini on hot grill grate. Place a heavy skillet with a heatproof handle (preferably a cast iron one) on top and press down. If you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can substitute a clean brick, thoroughly wrapped in aluminum foil, on top of each panini.
  4. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until bread is toasted and browned, then turn over and cook 3-4 minutes on the other side. Repeat with remaining 2 panini. Cut in halves to serve.
