Grilled Caprese Panini

Course: Sandwich
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Author: Cynthia


  • 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread (I like sourdough)
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons homemade or store-bought pesto
  • 2 slices fresh tomato
  • Olive oil


  • Brush both sides of bread with olive oil, (inside and outside)
  • Spread pesto on insides of both slices.
  • Add slices of cheese and tomatoes.
  • Press between a panini press or in a hot pan, pressing down. Flip sandwich and continue cooking until cheese is melted and bread is toasted.
