Italian Grilled Cheese Panini

Italian Grilled Cheese Panini
  • 1/4 cup Pompeian Classic Pure Olive Oil or OlivExtra
  • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 4 slices beefsteak tomato
  • 4 slices Italian bread, such as Panella round
  • 4-6 basil leaves
  • 8 slices provolone cheese

1. Brush the 4 slices of bread liberally on one side with the Pompeian Classic Pure Olive Oil. Top two of the bread slices with 4 slices of cheese, 2 slices of tomato, 2-3 basil leaves, and the Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining bread, oiled side up.

2. Heat a large skillet, griddle or panini maker*, and place the sandwiches on it. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until toasted golden. Flip sandwiches over and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is golden. Cut in half and serve immediately.

*If using a Panini maker, there is no need to flip the sandwiches over.
