  12. Toast for about 5 minutes, pressing lightly at the beginning of the cooking.
  13. When the bread is nicely browned and the cheese is melted, serve with a salad.

Tip

You don't have a panini grill? Not a problem! Use a ridged cast-iron grill pan and on the sandwich, place a pie dish weighted by something heavy (a large can, for example). Flip halfway through the cooking.
