Good Morning everyone I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It rained here rather a lot on Saturday, which stopped a few things in the garden but not everything! . . .and then on Sunday well that was a lot better and the sun even shone for Fathers Day. To bring a little Italian sunshine to the day ( I am ever hopeful that summer will return) I made some Mozzarella and Bacon Panini’s for lunch, much appreciated and enjoyed. Did you know that panino is the Italian for sanwich?
Now if you have a griddle then all the better to make these, however I dont so it is possible without!
You will need:
Take a panini, half it, if you like garlic then rub a little garlic over the bread and place under the grill until JUST toasted remove and spread lightly with pesto home made if you have it (see my recipe) shop bought is fine if not.
. . . add a layer of Mozzarella and tomato
. . . some basil and chopped bacon
. . . a bit more Mozarella
Place the top on and if you have a griddle place in the griddle 5 – 8 mins if not, dont worry I wrapped mine in foil and placed in a warm oven for approx 15mins, take a bit longer!
And there we are an enjoyable lunch full of Italian sunshine – we can always dream!
Have a great day and thank you for reading
Take care until next time
