No need for takeout when you can make our delicious Roasted Red Pepper Panini right at home. Country Crock® Spread, basil, and garlic make a creamy pesto that gives this sandwich so much fabulous flavor. We love the combination of spinach, roasted red pepper, and mozzarella, but feel free to experiment with your favorite ingredients.
Process Country Crock® Spread, basil and garlic in food processor or blender until almost smooth.
Spread 2 slices bread with basil butter. Top with spinach, roasted pepper, mozzarella, and remaining bread slices.
To cook in panini press: Preheat the press. Add sandwich and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions until golden and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining sandwich.
To cook in skillet: Melt 1 tablespoon Country Crock® Spread over medium heat in skillet and add sandwiches to skillet. Place a heatproof plate on top of sandwiches and weigh down with heavy heat-proof object. Cook sandwiches 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Turn sandwiches over and weigh down with plate. Cook 3 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted.
