lunch on 2 April 2013: pizza-style egg panini

I think the theme of lunch-making this weeks is: how many different ways can I incorporate hard boiled eggs into the kiddos lunches? Yesterday it was simple: straight up peeled eggs with salt and pepper. Today we have a pizza-style sliced egg panini. I layered marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella and sliced hard boiled eggs on top of multigrain skinny bread, stuck ’em in the oven until the cheese was good and melty, and smashed the sandwiches under a cast iron pan to press everything together. How yummy does that sound? If my basil plant wasn’t looking so sorry, I would have put a few basil leaves in the sandwiches to make them even more pizza-y. For some crunchy sides, I included a few whole wheat pretzel twists and a couple of Speculoos cookies. Fruit today is very Central Coast: satsumas (coming to the end of the season) and strawberries (just starting to get more sweet than tart).
