Peach Panini with Mozzarella, Prosciutto and Arugula

It’s day number 3 of Peach Week and this is one of my favourite Panini creations ever. A mouth watering combination of fresh peaches drizzled with balsamic glaze, creamy handmade mozzarella, good quality prosciutto, and peppery baby arugula between fresh sourdough bread. SOOOOO good!

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of thickly sliced sourdough bread
  • A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for brushing on the bread (1/2 tsp per slice)
  • A few slices of mozzarella (I used a fabulous handmade skim mozzarella that was beautiful)
  • 1 peach, thinly sliced
  • A drizzle of balsamic glaze
  • 1 slice of prosciutto
  • A small handful of baby arugula
  • Kosher (coarse) salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning

Directions:

  1. Preheat your panini maker.
  2. Drizzle or brush olive oil on the outside of the bread.
  3. Layer one slice of sourdough with mozzarella and then sliced peaches. Season peaches with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Top with a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Add the Prosciutto, and then the arugula on top. Add a few grinds of pepper on top of the arugula. Finally place a few slices of mozzarella on top so the entire panini will press and stick together.
  4. Top with the second slice of bread and transfer to the panini maker.
  5. Grill until the cheese has melted and the bread is toasted (a few minutes).
  6. Remove sandwich from the panini maker with a large spatula and let rest a minute as it will be very hot, and the cheese will ooze if you choose to slice in two.
