Well, I just bought myself a Panini maker and I love it! This new toy gave me an idea, fresh Focaccia for my panini. I’m using my Homemade Focaccia With Rosemary And Garlic for The Perfect Panini.

Prep Time: 1o minutes
Cook Time: 5 to 8 minutes
Total Time: 18  minutes
Yields: 2 to 4 servings
Equipment: Panini maker

Ingredients:
Homemade Focaccia, 4 slices (substitute Ciabatta or a good artisanal bread)
6 slice of fresh Mozzarella cheese, 1/4-inch thick
6 slices of Proscuitto, thinly sliced
6 slices of Capacola, thinly sliced
6 slices of Genoa salami, thinly sliced
6 slices of roasted red peppers, julienned

2 tablespoons of fresh store-bought (Buitoni) basil pesto, divided per sandwich
Kosher salt, to taste
Black pepper, fresh ground to taste

Directions:
Preheat panini press according to manufacturer’s directions. Spray panini press with non-stick cooking spray.

Lay two slices of focaccia to use as the bottom portion of your sandwich on a flat surface. Spread 2 tablespoons of the fresh store-bought basil pesto, evenly divided, on the bottom half of each sandwich. Place three slices, each, of the deli meats on each slice of focaccia. Next, the sliced Mozzarella, Kosher salt, and pepper to taste, roasted julienned peppers, and last, the fresh basil leaves. Place the tops on and press down firmly. Place the sandwiches into the press and close. Cook until the bread is toasted and crisp, with golden brown grill marks and the cheese begins to melt, 5 to 8 minutes.
