BLT with Mozzarella and Sundried Tomato Panini
I rarely post sandwich recipes on Katie’s Cucina. I don’t know why either. I love making panini’s at home. Before Christmas I made a killer BLT with Mozzarella and Sundried Tomato Panini and before I took the first bite I decided to snap a few photos just in case it was delicious. Of course, it was, and I’m glad I snapped the photos.
We love to make panini’s at home. Whether its a quick lunch or diner its the way we like to make sandwiches at home. I’ve never been a big sandwich person, but panini’s do it for me! Something about toasted bread and melted cheese… ahhh and now I think I’m craving one. Fun fact, we don’t keep bread in our house. For most homes it’s a staple. For us, we simply don’t really eat a lot of it, so I don’t buy it. I guess that actually better for our waistlines. Although, right now watching my waistline is the very last priority of my life. Don’t get me wrong–I’m watching what I eat… as it goes into my mouth. Only kidding. I’m still eating relatively healthy, but on days I crave bacon cheddar fries or even an apple pie milkshake… I make it and eat it with no regrets.
Either way, whether or not your watching your waistline… give my recipe for BLT with Mozzarella and Sundried Tomato Panini a try! I promise it makes for the best lunch or dinner and while your at it pair it with a delicious soup or maybe even a salad!
