Piggy Panini

Everybody loves a Panini!  What is so special about a Panini? You can get them in every freeway rest stop along the freeways in Italy!  Yep, that’s right and boy are they good!  Prosciutto, mortadella and a dozen other fillings and combinations are all waiting in the deli showcase.  Whether or not it’s grilled is up to you.  

Big crusty loaf of country bread; figure one full Panini per person
2 slices of cooked bacon per Panini
1/3 avocado sliced per Panini
3 slice mozzarella per Panini
2 slices cheddar per Panini
3 slices tomatoes per Panini
Butter for the outside of your Panini
Butter the bread
Layer mozzarella, tomatoes, bacon, avocado and cheddar on each slice of bread
Top with another slice of bread
Butter the bread and place into pre heated Panini press
Toast for about 5 minutes
Cut sandwiches in half and serve hot
If you do not have a Panini press any grill will do!!!!  Even a frying pan in pinch!


  1. Nice! A Panini is pretty much perfect no matter what's in it but bacon? And, avocado? Please... You just made a good thing even better. The photos are so appetizing too.
