Sharp Cheddar, Avocado, and Tomato Panini

My daughter was home sick this week so I wanted to make her a special lunch to make her feel better. She has recently discovered a love for sharp cheddar and pepperjack cheese which is exciting for me because she hasn’t liked cheese for years. I made this tasty panini with some leftover roasted garlic bread that I had leftover from our dinner the night before and I layered it with sharp cheddar, tomato slices, and avocado. It was a hit with my daughter and she gobbled up every single bite.

Preheat your panini grill or a grill pan over medium heat.

Spread some of the shredded cheese on the bread then layer it with tomato and avocado and season with a bit of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper before adding a little more cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top.

Place into your panini pan (or grill pan).  Cook for 5 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy!

Side Note:  I always cook my paninis dry.  I find that using oil or butter on the bread makes the sandwich too greasy.  Try it – I bet you will like it and it’s way better for you!
