Ultimate Spring Ciabatta Panini

Ready to serve in: 15 minutes
Serves: 4 Sandwhiches

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Ciabatta
  • 8 oz Garlic Scape & Dill Maro' or Broccoli Pesto
  • 8 oz Mozzarella or Sharp Cheddar Cheese, sliced thick
  • 16 strips of thick cut Bacon or Pancetta
  • 4 large leafs of Spring Head Lettuce (like red oak or spring mix)
  • 1/2 bunch of Basil, torn
  • 1/4 Red Onion, sliced
  • 1 bunch of Broccolini or Broccoli Raab
  • 4 small pickled Hot Peppers (like cherry bombs), optional
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Profumo del Vermont spice mix, split use

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 375*F. Place sliced bacon on a lined sheet tray and roast until crispy, about 12 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, reserve bacon fat for your broccolini.

Cut your broccoli into long thin strips about an inch long and 1/2 inch thick. Place on the sheet tray with the bacon fat and toss with 1/2 tsp of Profumo del Vermont. Roast at 375*F until tender, about 6-10 minutes. 

Slice red onions, mozzarella and peppers, set aside. 

Clean lettuce and basil. Dry well.

Toast your ciabatta. Cut ciabatta in half and place on a lined sheet tray.  Drizzle ciabatta with olive oil and the remaining Profumo del Vermont. Toast at 425*F until lightly golden. 

 Build your sandwich. Spread maro' thickly on one side of the ciabatta. Layer bacon, mozzarella, broccolini, red onion, and hot peppers. If you desire a melty sando don't add the basil or lettuce yet, pop the top on and place in the oven until the mozzarella is melted. Then remove top and add basil and lettuce. 

Buon appetito!
