Cheddar & Chorizo Pan-Fried Pizza Panini

All the flavours of a chorizo pizza, but in a panini! We've included the pan-fried instructions, but this recipe will be just as tasty in a panini press if you have one.

Cereals containing gluten

Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Get Prepped

a) Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).

b) Once hot, add the chorizo and fry until it starts to brown, 3-4 mins. Remove the chorizo from the pan and set aside. Keep the pan for the next step.

c) While the chorizo fries, halve the ciabatta and grate the cheese.

d) Spread the sun-dried tomato paste over the lids and bases of your ciabatta.

e) Share the Cheddar and chorizo evenly between your ciabatta bases, then sandwich shut the 2 halves.

Bring on the Panini

a) Wipe out your frying pan and return to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

b) Once hot, add the ciabatta, pressing down with a spatula or heavy-bottomed pan.

c) Cook, pressing occasionally, until the bread is golden and toasted and the cheese has melted, 2-4 mins each side.

Make the Salad and Serve

a) In a small bowl, combine the olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount) and the rocket. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

b) Once cooked, slice your paninis diagonally and share between 2 serving plates.

c) Serve the dressed rocket alongside your panini and drizzle the balsamic glaze over the salad to finish.
