A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
After a week of healthy eating sometimes Meg and I just want something sweet and savory for breakfast on a lazy Saturday morning. These mini paninis, from Giada de Laurentiis, were just the thing for today. With only 5 ingredients (salt and olive oil don’t count because you should always have those on hand), you can make these in less than 10 minutes. The perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee.
Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. Spread the jam over one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle the rosemary over the jam. Add 2 slices of mozzarella to each panini, sprinkling the cheese with some salt. Sprinkle the outside of the paninis with the brown sugar.
Heat a pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Place the paninis in the pan and press down with a cast iron skillet (I also added a teapot on top for some extra weight).
Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip the paninis, press and cook for another 2 minutes until lightly toasted and the cheese is melted.
Cut each panini in half and serve, delicious.
