Tomato and Mozzarella sandwiches are one of my absolute favorites and we eat them often in our house. But adding avocado and turning it into a panini definitely took our staple sandwich way up a notch. Absolutely amazing!
Quite frankly, eating it like this, without toasting the bread is fabulous as well. I used Campari tomatoes (the smaller ones) and fresh slices of mozzarella.
Gooey mozzarella and creamy avocado…are you drooling yet??
Makes 2 sandwiches
Tomato Avocado and Mozzarella Panini
2 fresh ciabatta rolls
2 Roma or Campari tomatoes, sliced
6 slices of fresh Mozzarella
1 avocado, sliced
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
After everything is sliced, spread the mayonnaise on open sides of the ciabatta rolls. Preheat your panini maker or skillet. Layer 3 slices of mozzarella, 2-4 slices of tomatoes (depending on which you use), and a couple of slices of avocado on each roll. Add a couple of splashes of balsamic vinegar over the layers, followed by a dash of Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
Place sandwich on panini maker and close the lid. Allow the bread to toast and the mozzarella to melt a little, about 7-10 minutes. You can also use a skillet with a panini press.
