 “The delicious Apple Pork Pressed Panini”

This recipe was created equally by John and I and started with a trip to Pete’s Frootique’s Bakery where we found  a round loaf of focaccia bread.. Which immediately made us want to make a panini in our George Foreman grill! After shopping at Pete’s we also came out with fresh buffalo milk mozzarella, which is mozza in it’s original form and is totally delicious!

     When creating a recipe we never really know exactly what we are going to do until we see what we want. After a trip to The Real Atlantic Superstore, qw came home with a red onion and Presidents Choice Brand Carmelized onion topping.

To begin we mixed together:

  • 1/2 cup of ground pork (you can use any ground meat we use pork beacuse it is lean and has great flavor)
  • 1/4 cup of diced cheese curds
  • 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • season with salt & pepper

Form into a large patty and fry, season with salt and pepper.

Apple Onion Mayo:

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp carmelized onion
  • 1 tsp apple sauce

The Focaccia Bread

  • 1 tbsp of garlic butter
  • 1tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Melt in pot. Take a paint brush and cover both sides of the bread with the mixture. The put the top and bottom of the sandwich in the panini press before adding the toppings.
