Be sure to use the freshest ingredients for this classic Italian sandwich."
4 slices ciabatta
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 ounce (2 thin slices) prosciutto
1 plum tomato, cut into ¼-inch slices
4 fresh basil leaves
2 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
1 . Preheat grill in the closed position.
2 . Brush one side of each slice of bread with the oil. Lay 2 slices of bread on a work surface, oiled side down. Build the sandwiches in this order: prosciutto, tomato, basil and cheese, evenly dividing the ingredients between the sandwiches. Top with remaining bread, oiled side up.
3 . Place sandwiches on the bottom grill plate and close, applying medium pressure to the handle for 30 seconds. Grill panini for 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is nicely toasted.
4 . Let rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Cut in half on the diagonal and serve warm.
