Panini for One
The Italians have it right when it comes to grown-up grilled sandwiches. You don’t
need a Panini maker—you can use a frying pan and a heavy plate to press the sandwich.
1 4-inch-square Panini roll
1 slice (1 oz.) low-sodium Swiss cheese
2 oz. cooked pork tenderloin
1/4 cup shredded zucchini
1 Roma tomato, cut into thin slices
1/8 cup thinly sliced red onion
Olive oil spray
Slice roll and remove some of the interior bread to make for a crisper sandwich.
Put half the cheese on bottom of roll. Layer meat, zucchini, tomato, and onion. Cover
with rest of cheese and top of roll.
Heat a sandwich grill. Spray grill plates lightly with olive oil. Bake sandwich until
cheese melts and meat is hot, about 3 to 5 minutes.
