Caprese Panini with Prosciutto


  • Loaf of fresh French bread, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 tomato, sliced thin
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced thick
  • Fresh prosciutto, sliced thin
  • Olive oil

Heat a panini press to medium-high heat.

Lightly spread both sides of two pieces of French bread with olive oil. On the first piece of bread, layer two slices of fresh Mozzarella cheese, two slices of tomato, 2-3 slices of prosciutto and top with 2-3 basil leaves. Place the other piece of bread on top.

Grill on the panini press for about 3 minutes, or until bread is lightly browned and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

If you don't have a panini press: Add your sandwich to a skillet over medium-low heat. Place a very heavy pot or pan over top of the sandwich to weigh it down. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
