Panini (with focaccia bread)

Something else to do with that wonderful focaccia bread: paninis.

Make the dough and then divide in half and roll out to fit two baking trays. Cover and leave to rise for about 1/2 hour and bake at 350 F until cooked.

Cut each flat loaf into about 6 squares and split each piece in half. Fill with your preferred filling. In those pictured below I spread Philadelphia on one half and mayonnaise on the other half, added a scattering of drained, tinned tuna, chopped olives, chopped tomatoes and a little grated Gouda cheese.

Sandwich together and place in the heated sandwich maker with griddle irons for a couple of minutes until the filling is warmed and the bread is slightly toasted, as in the photo. Yummmm!

Assalaamu alaikum,

Insha'Allah we will have www in dz Umm Hibaat however... will have to share it with the kids. :/ Still, we are taking 2 laptops so insha'Allah we can rig them both up to the internet. :)

Sis Kawthar, 3 of my children are at school during the day so I find some time for internet during that time and also in the evening when they are sleeping. I also think that when you have a few children you are a little more relaxed about things! :D
