When I say I need a recipe for everything, I mean everything. Even sandwiches.
Sure I can make a grilled cheese without instruction, but when it comes to putting together killer sandwich combos, I'm not very inventive. And that's why I love this website – it's got heaps of different ideas for delicious paninis, like this asparagus and prosciutto one...
Grilled Asparagus & Prosciutto PaniniYou'll need...
- 1 lb. asparagus
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 focaccia, sliced into 4 pieces
- 4 slices prosciutto
- 8 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced into 1/4″ slicesWhat to do...1. Preheat the panini grill to medium-high heat.2. Rinse the asparagus and break the ends off of each spear (if you hold onto each end and bend the spear it will naturally break in the right place). Discard the ends. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for about 3 minutes until cooked through and grill marks appear. Set aside.3. Turn off the grill and carefully clean the grates. Reheat the grill to medium-high heat.4. For each sandwich: Slice the focaccia in half lengthwise. Place a slice of prosciutto inside the bottom half. Top with 1/4 of the cheese and as many asparagus spears as will fit securely. Close the sandwich with the other focaccia half. Grill 4-5 minutes until the cheese is melted. Slice the sandwich in half, serve immediately and enjoy!
