  • 4 Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks

    2 slices panini bread

    2 TBSP olive oil

    1 Roma tomato

    6 fresh basil leaves


  1. Bake the Mozzarella Sticks in the oven at 450°F for approximately 9 minutes.
  2. Brush 1 side of each piece of bread with olive oil. Place it oil-side-down on a panini press.
  3. Slice the Roma tomato, dab the excess moisture with a paper towel, and add it to the top of the bread slice.
  4. When the baked Mozzarella Sticks are cool enough to handle, slice them in half and place them cheese-side down on top of the tomatoes. Top with basil, then add the second slice of bread, oil-side-up.
  5. Press the panini lid down and cook until the top is golden-brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Use a spatula to carefully remove the panini, slice it in half, and serve with Farm Rich Avocado Slices if desired. Enjoy!
