Basil Cheddar Paninis

This is a delicious comfort food that is a regular in our household. I try to always have these ingredients on hand because it is a quick fix for any meal.

Ingredients per one panini:
2 slices of sourdough bread
1 tsp room temperature butter
garlic salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of cheddar cheese
6 basil leaves***
2 slices of tomato
***if you don't have basil leaves, basil pesto is a great substitute

1. Turn on panini maker
2. While panini maker is warming up, spread butter on one side of each piece of bread and then sprinkle the buttered sides with with garlic salt and pepper.
3. In between the un-buttered sides of bread; place the cheese, tomato with a sprinkle of pepper, and basil leaves.
4. Place sandwich on panini maker until cheese is melted and bread is toasty brown.
5. Remove from panini maker, cut in half and enjoy!
