Vegetable Panini Sandwich Recipe

There is something so Delicious about a Panini Sandwich!  I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes that I think you will love too. I enjoy mine open face for more flavor but you could serve it closed as well.

olive oil
1 eggplant cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 small red onion
1 Red Bell Pepper, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 Tomato thinly sliced                                                                                       
Fresh Basil
Pesto Sauce
Balsamic Glaze

You will find Balsamic glazes in many of the high end cooking stores that will run up to $20.00  I have found the $3 bottle at Trader Joe’s is just as comparable   Although I enjoy making my own pesto, the store bought jar at Trader Joe’s  is quite good as well.

Heat a  pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle the oil over the eggplant, onion and peppers and cook until tender (about 10 minutes)

Slice the baguette in half and toast for about a minute. Spread the baquette with the pesto, add the cooked vegetables on top followed by tomato slices, mozzarella, and Basil.

Cook in a 350 degree oven until cheese is melted.  Drizzle The balsamic glaze on top and enjoy!

I also wanted to say thank you for all the heartfelt comments on Bailey and the Kitchen, I enjoyed reading each and every beautiful  note from you.

If you get a chance stop by Savvy Southern Style to see what my favorite room in the house is and It’s Overflowing for our home tour.
