Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
1 can pineapple rings, thinly sliced in half
1 medium red onion, half-moon thinly sliced
1 small tomato, thinly sliced
1 bunch spinach
1 load italian bread
6oz thinly sliced mozzarella cheese (or vegan mozzarella cheese)
1 lb deli roasted ham, thinly sliced (or vegan ham, tofurky or Yves)
1/2 stick unsalted butter (or vegan butter)
kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Heat the oven to 400F. Spray a large sheet pan with non-stick spray.
Season pineapples with salt and pepper. Place tomato, pineapple and onion slices on a sheet pan in a single later. Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until they're browned and caramelized.
Season spinach with salt and pepper, to taste.
Build your panini by layering 1 slice of bread with 1 slice of cheese, ham, pineapple, onion, tomato, fresh spinach and top everything with another slice of cheese. Cover with another piece of bread.
Spray a panini press with cooking spray and a bit of butter. Add sandwich, top with another bit of butter and close press to cook the sandwich until golden brown on both sides. If you don't have a panini press, you can toast the sandwich in the oven and just press it together after toasting or you can use a big pan and press the sandwich down with a heavy skillet until pressed. Enjoy!
