Italian Grilled Cheese Panini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Basil Pesto
This panini is a delicious twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich, with the addition of sun-dried tomatoes and a flavorful basil pesto. The sandwich is grilled to perfection, creating a crispy exterior and a gooey, melted interior. Perfect for a quick lunch or snack.
Spread 2 tablespoons of basil pesto on each slice of bread.
Top two slices of bread with 2 slices of mozzarella cheese, 2 sun-dried tomato halves, and another 2 slices of mozzarella cheese.
Place the remaining two slices of bread on top of the cheese, pesto side down.
Heat a grill pan or panini press over medium heat.
Spread 1 tablespoon of butter on the top of each sandwich.
Place the sandwiches in the grill pan or panini press and press down lightly. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Serve hot and enjoy!
