Ham, Swiss and Pesto Panini
- 2 slices French bread
- 1 tsp. pesto sauce homemade, preferably
- 1 tsp. mayonnaise
- 1/2 Roma tomato, sliced
- 1 slice Swiss cheese
- 2 thin slices ham, Black Forest works well
- Olive oil, a thin layer on outside of each bread slice
Preheat the panini press. Coat the one side of each bread slice with olive oil. This will help prevent the sandwich from sticking to the press/grill.
Mix the mayonnaise with the pesto and spread on the other side of each bread slice. (I admit to adding an extra teaspoon of pesto) On that, layer the remainder in the following order Swiss, tomato, ham. Close sandwich, pop it in the panini press, close, count to 240 or thereabouts... and EAT.
Yield: 1 sandwich
