Serving Size: 1 (88 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Very good! Try it with some purple onion strips and brush some balsamic vinegar over the tomatoes- Yum!"
"Yum! Really delicious and easy to make"
"Outstanding!! the only thing i did differently was add one slice of thin proscuitto to it as well. Oh and used plum tomatoes"
"I LOVED the basil on this sandwich, I put 3 whole leaves on each. The only thing I needed DH to get at the store was the panini bread and tomatoes. The guys wanted some meat in their panini, that's men for you. Made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 game, for the*Wild Card* *Italian Region* Thank you for posting"
"Tasty treat I had today for lunch. Forgive me but I cleaned out my fridge and made some substitutions. Instead of fontina used brie, instead of arugula used spinach, instead of ciabatta rolls used naan bread and doubled up on the tomatoes. Absolutely fabulous."
"This was part of our panini party. I laid out heaps of ingredients and had the recipes posted nearby. We used all the cheeses on this and added a few slices of artichoke heart. Yummo!"
"Very delicious, definitely a keeper. I used Italian cheese blend which already has all the cheeses in 1 bag, shredded. Instead of fresh basil, I sprinkled on some Italian seasoning. Made for ZWT 4"
"Just loved this blend of cheeses. The fontina was creamy with a hint of nuttiness. The mozzarella is gooey, mild and delicate which is great with the aged asiago that I used which is salty and grainy, the provolone gave this a rich creaminess. I did have some shredded cheddar which was a mix with my mozzarella. Love Loved the basil and arugula this really makes it! I also oiled lightly the outside of the bread before cooking. I just ate this and as I type I want one more! So soooo GOOD!"
"Yummo! What a great way to do "grilled cheese" for grown-ups! The Italian cheeses, tomatoes, and basil work perfectly together especially w/ the ciabatta roll. I scaled things back to make one sandwich. Used sliced grape tomatoes, as those are the most flavorful right now. Left out the arugula b/c I didn't have any. Used my George Foreman G5 to cook it, pushing down on the handle to create pressure. I was only supposed to eat half the sandwich and before I knew it, the whole thing was gone!"
"This was my first panini I have ever made. I had to make it with rye bread but it was wonderful. The taste of the basil with the tomato and cheese was outstanding. I will be making this again. Reviewed for ZWT4."
"This panini sandwich really hit the spot at lunch today. I scaled back to one and used a sourdough submarine roll, which was sturdy enough to stand up to the juicy tomatoes I can (now) get. No arugula, but used extra basil and loved every bite."
"These were a hit! Loved all the cheese and the tomatoes and basil grilled into it, yummo!"
"Just made these for lunch -- and they were great. May have cut the bread a little to thin because the tomatoe leaked through. Still very good! I had mine exactly as written, and add ham to DH's sandwich. My picture is not near as pretty as yours so I'm not going to post here! Thanks for sharing"
"Mmmmmm, yummy sandwich! I didn't have fontina, so used some smoked Gouda I had in the fridge. I also used a hamburger bun. Delicious! Thank you Cheryl!"
