Mozzarella, Raspberry & Brown Sugar Panini

**found in January 2011 InStyle Magazine

**kid friendly

Serves 6

12 1/2-inch thick GF White Bread (try Udi's or Rudi's)
1/3 cup olive oil
3/4 cup raspberry jam
3 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
12 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, patted dry and sliced
salt-optional
3 tbsp light brown sugar

1.  Preheat panini press or gill pan on a stove top over medium heat.  2.  Using a pastry brush, paint bread on both sides with oil.  Spread one side of each slice with jam.  Sprinkle rosemary over jam.  3.  Cut mozzarella into 12 slices.  Place 2 slices each on 6 pieces of bread.  Season cheese with a pinch of salt, if using.  4.  Place remaining slices of bread on top, jam side down.  Sprinkle with sugar.  5.  Grill panini for 3-5 minutes, until cheese has melted and bread is golden and crispy.  Cut in half and serve.

Cook's note:  If using a grill pan, preheat pan, add sandwiches (in batches, if necessary), and put a weight (such as a brick wrapped in aluminum foil or a heavy cast-iron skillet) on top press them down.  Grill for 2-3 minutes to brown first side, flip sandwich, replace weight, and grill for 2-3 minutes to brown other side and finish melting cheese.

Try buying a grill pan with press at Target.com
