This is so easy, but so good. The key is to use a good quality pesto. Oh, and to make it truly outstanding, you have to invite me over. Really. It’s a well-known fact. ;) You can use a grill with a foil-covered brick if you don’t have a press.
2 slices french bread
1 teaspoon pesto sauce (homemade, preferably!)
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1/2 roma tomato, sliced
1 slice swiss cheese
2 slices ham, black forest works well
olive oil, a thin layer on outside of each bread slice
1. Preheat the panini press.
2. Coat one side of each bread slice with olive oil. This will help prevent the sandwich from sticking to the press/grill.
3. Mix the mayonnaise with the pesto and spread on the other side of each bread slice. (I admit to adding an extra teaspoon of pesto!) On that, layer the remainder in the following order: Swiss, tomato, ham.
4. Close sandwich, making sure the oiled side is facing outward, pop it in the panini press, close, count to 240… or thereabouts… and EAT!
