If you are looking for a quick hot lunch or a comforting sandwich to pair with dinner, this panini, packed with baby bella mushrooms, gooey swiss cheese, and sweet sauteed onions is a fantastic choice.
I needed to make something fairly quick for lunch and since I still have 97 things left to check off my to-do list for the day, this worked out perfect.
This panini sandwich could easily be made vegan if you just omit the cheese. This is what it looks like before adding the swiss. Still looks yummy but I love my cheese…
It took 20 minutes to make from start to finish and 2 minutes to eat.. While the onions & mushrooms were cooking, I started prepping the sandwiches and heating the panini press.
I sautéed the mushrooms & onions separately and then added them back to the pan to heat together at the end.
up-close & personal.. Panini’s are “pressed” sandwiches that can be filled with anything you’d like. This vegetarian version will satisfy even the biggest of meat-eaters..
I LOVE Ciabatta bread for Panini’s. The outside gets crunchy while the inside stays soft. It is the perfect bread choice for any “pressed” sandwich.
Caramelized Onions, Sautéed Mushrooms, scallions, swiss cheese, dijon on ciabatta bread pressed until crispy on the outside and ooey-gooey melted cheesy goodness on the inside.
