How To Make Strawberry, Basil and Goat Cheese Panini
Top this goat cheese panini with strawberries and basil for a wonderful combination of sweet and tart taste with minty, earthy flavors and milky texture.
Spread a layer of goat cheese over both slices of bread. Slice your strawberries relatively thinly by cutting off slices from the outside of the strawberries, leaving the center behind.
Spread strawberries over one slice of bread, and basil on the other. Sprinkle both sides with black pepper, and lay the basil slice face down on top of the strawberry slice.
Heat a small to medium skillet over medium heat. Melt one to two teaspoons of butter in the skillet, then add the sandwich.
Cover it with a plate or appropriately sized dish and weigh it down with something heavy, like canned beans or a cast-iron skillet.
Cook until the bottom of the bread is lightly browned, about two to three minutes, then lift the sandwich from the pan, add another pat of butter, let it melt, and return the sandwich to repeat on the other side. Slice each sandwich in half and serve warm.
To make the balsamic honey sauce, combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
Simmer, stirring constantly, until the liquid is reduced by about half. Pour the liquid into a small bowl to cool.
