Martini Panini? Hi, yes.
Even though I can't really partake in these baby beauts, IN MY CONDITION, I still wanted to stick a bunch in my purse.
You know what I think? I think these should make their way to your Labor Day shindig. Or breakfast, you pick.
You won't believe how simple and bonkers good this Martini-Inspired Panini
is. Vodka + mayo + lemon zest + pancetta + arugula + Pillsbury French bread + olives on toothpicks? Seriously?
Invite me to your party. Oh wait, I still can't eat them. I'll smell them! That won't be weird at all, right?
Alright! Start by baking your bread. Simple stuff. Unroll, score and stick her in the oven.
Then slice the baked bread into 1/2 inch slices. Maybe a tad bit thicker. Whatever you want!
In the meantime, make a vodka-infused mayo. With some lemon zest. I mean really.
Then you'll just make some little sammies. Brush one side of each slice with some awl. I mean oil. Then layer with arugula, thick pancetta slices, and a good drizzle of the vodka mayo. Bam.
Then throw them on a little indoor grill oorrrrr a panini press! I didn't photograph this because my grill is inanely heavy and I'm already carrying 40 thousand children in my belly.
Voila. Martini panini, bambini.
You're gonna need this at your next party, like I said. Or now.
Let's just go with now.*Bev didn't eat this martini panini, YOU GUYS. She's waiting until her 40 thousand children come. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
