Mozzarella Sage & Bella Mushroom Panini on Sourdough


Dearies we used what was in the house. We threw perfection out of the window for taste. We were not disappointed. It was a cold winter's day & we needed something hot, easy and good. We don't do usual well, not unlike other ladies & gentlemen (well you know...you're the same & the "usual" is killing you). We decided on finger size paninis. We paired it with homemade carrot soup. It was a family affair in the kitchen, with Hubby, Steph (home from college) & moi, as all meals should be. It was fun, delightful, human & delicious. Here's our
Mozzarella Sage & Bella Mushrooms Panini on Sourdough.


Gather 8 ounces Bella mushrooms & slice lengthwise. Saute in butter in a frying pan until tender.


Slice one small loaf of sourdough and brush the outside slice of each sandwich with olive oil.


Gather enough sage to liberally supply all your sandwiches about .75 ounces (or one sage packet from the grocer).


Add heaping amounts of the sage, mushrooms, and mozzarella (from an 8 ounce package) on the clean side (the side without the olive oil) of the sourdough slice. Place the clean side of the adjoining sandwich slice on top of the ingredients.


Place the oiled side of the sandwiches in an already pre-prepped Panini maker. Heat the sandwiches according to the Panini maker directions & until the cheese is melted sufficiently.
