Panini Fun.

Switzerland1 028edit

So. If I have learned one thing…it’s that it is all about the bread and meat and cheese here. And the views. But that’s beside the point.

I have also learned that I am in full support of this bread,meat and cheese thing, and have decided to embrace it as a weekly experiment. You see, I have always wanted to be one of those people who can whip up an amazing meal off the top of their head. No recipe required. No list of ingredients provided. They just know what tastes good together and can make magic happen. This is really hard guys. So, in an attempt to one day reach my goal and in honor of Switzerland, I plan on panini experimenting each week. I am starting off small in hopes that I can at least come up with some recipes that taste good. And we will just go from there.

I will say that I do believe I am off to a good start, though, because what I am about to show you was scrumptious. Even the hubs agreed.

All you need is:

4 slices of your favorite bread

4 slices of prosciutto

4 thick slices of freshmozzarella

fig preserves

1/2 red onion, sliced

1 Tbsp. olive oil

//serves 2//

–If you do not have a panini maker, you can start off by pre heating the oven to 400.–

Switzerland1 019editSpread fig preserves on both the top piece and bottom piece of your sandwich. Then layer on 2 slices of prosciutto.

When the onions are through cooking, layer them on top of the meat, then add your 2 chunks of sliced mozzarella.

Put a little bit of olive oil on both sides of the sandwich so it gets nice and crispy when it cooks.

Throw them in the panini maker and get ready to eat!

Switzerland1 029editIf you do not have a panini maker (like I currently do not) you can put the sandwiches in the oven on a sprayed down baking sheet, to cook for about 10-12 minutes.

And that should do it! Everyone loves a good sandwich :) –Ashley
