Caprese Panini Sandwich

Possibly considered a bit fancy for a camping trip this panini is surprisingly easy and tasty to make while outdoors.

The instructions for this version use a grill grate then place an upside down skillet that helps to keep the heat on the sandwich to melt the cheese.

The biggest trick to success with this recipe is temperature control. A heat is needed that give the cheese time to melt without burning the roll, thus a moderately low temperature.

Ingredients

Ciabatta rolls

1 tomato, sliced

2 slices of mozzarella cheese

1 sprig basil

balsamic vinegar, reduced if available

Equipment

grill grate

skillet

Recipe Directions

  1. Cut the Ciabatta rolls in half and open up.

  2. Layer with tomato, mozzarella cheese, basil and a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar.
    If you have reduced balsamic vinegar this can work better as it is thicker and less likely to make the roll go soggy.

  3. Close the sandwich then place on the grill preheated to a moderate low temperature, then place an upside down skillet over the top to keep the heat focused on the panini.

  4. After about 5 minutes, or when the roll had brown grill grates on it, remove the skillet, turn the panini, then replace the skillet to finish the cooking, about 5 more minutes.

  5. Half and serve immediately while the cheese is still gooey.
