INGREDIENTS

4           slices sourdough or hearty Italian or wheat bread


2           teaspoons olive oil


2           ounces Cheddar, sliced (about 3 to 4 thin slices)


½           medium avocado, sliced


1            plum tomato, cut into ¼-inch slices


¼ to ½ teaspoon kosher salt


              pinch freshly ground black pepper


2           teaspoons mayonnaise

Instructions

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: ½ of the cheese, avocado, tomato, salt and pepper and remaining ½ of cheese, evenly dividing the ingredients between the sandwiches.  Spread the mayonnaise on the inside of the remaining slices of bread and place on top of the sandwiches, oiled side up.


3 .   Place sandwiches on the bottom grill plate and close, applying medium pressure to the handle for 20 seconds . Grill panini for 4 to 6 minutes, or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are evenly grilled and golden.


4 .   Allow panini to rest for about 2 minutes. Then slice each sandwich in half and serve.
