Mexican vegetarian panini

Mexican yaaaas! You will truly enjoy this wonderful panini!

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1/2 jar of Rancheros Scramble (you can buy it in your local grocery store)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • cilantro
  • sriracha (as much as your body can handle)

*If you don’t want to buy a scramble jar (you should, it’s delicious), put some salsa instead!

Steps

It’s super easy. If you have a panini grill, well you know what to do. If you don’t, you should consider buying one because it transforms your way of eating sandwiches. Cold sandwiches are boring. Grilled sandwiches are heaven.

So if you still don’t have a panini grill, here you go (You are still missing something though):

Heat a pan on your stove at medium heat, add a little butter. Put your panini and cook in for about 3-4 minutes and turn it around. The cheese has to be melted. If it’s not, go buy a panini grill and the situation is going to be handled.

 

Good luck with your panini
