persimmon panini

Persimmon Panini


  • 2 slices sandwich bread
  • 2 heaping tsp. mascarpone cheese
  • 1 Fuyu persimmon
  • 3/4 oz Prosciutto di Parma
  • 1 1/2 oz sliced fresh mozzarella
  • a small handful of baby arugula
  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil


  1. Preheat a panini machine.
  2. Spread one slice of bread with mascarpone cheese. Peel and slice persimmon into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Discard core. Top with half the slices of persimmon. (One persimmon will give you enough fruit for two sandwiches, so you can enjoy the remaining slices while you finish preparing your panini). Top with prosciutto. Top with sliced mozzarella. Top with baby arugula and remaining slice of bread.
  3. When machine is ready, brush olive oil on both the top and bottom sides of the cooking surface. Place sandwich on griddle, close top and let press until you see the mozzarella ooze out. Enjoy!
