So, I know I just posted like, 30 minutes ago about how we were going on vacation for a week...yeeeeah...thanks to some (very) recent changes, the US Navy has other plans for the crew of the USS Wyoming Blue. We're definitely NOT leaving today, and in fact, may not be leaving at all. Whatever. Thank God the end is in sight and we're slated to leave this place soon. Boomer life is NOT for the Johnmeyer's. We love our Fast Attacks!
ANYWAY! This is another recipe I found on my dear Internet friend Cassie's blog Cassie Craves. I saw this sandwich Monday morning, immediately went to Amazon and purchased a Panini maker, and thanks to Amazon Prime, it was here Tuesday morning! The first thing I made was this sandwich and OMG was it good! The Balsamic Vinegar was a nice touch. This makes for an awesome lunch, and MUCH better than a boring 'ol lunch meat sandwich on white :) Thanks again Cassie for another tasty recipe (seriously, her blog is FULL of them, you really should check it out!)!

Olive oil (I used the Spray Olive Oil for this, worked great)
2 slices thick-cut bread (I used pre-slice Italian loaf I found in my grocers bakery)
3 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
2 slices tomato
3-4 leaves basil (depending on the size of your bread)
Salt and pepper
Top bread with mozzarella cheese, tomato, and basil; sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Spray the outer sides of both pieces of bread with Olive Oil and place in Panini maker. Cook until bread is crisp and cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
