starbucks panini

A grilled panini topped with tomato pesto, fresh tomatoes, and oven-roasted tomatoes. All you need is some focaccia bread, basil pesto (you may use store-bought pesto, spinach leaves, tomatoes and mozzarella. You do not need a panini press. I’m pretty sure, from my view behind the counter as customer, that Starbucks doesn’t use a panini press either. They have pre-wrapped sandwiches that they put in their oven for a few minutes.


For the Roasted Tomatoes:

  • 2 small Fresh Tomatoes, cut in 3/8-inch slices
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Garlic Powder

For the Sandwich:

  • fossasia bread
  • 4 tablespoons Basil Pesto
