  4. Place the onions and tomato slices on top of aluminum foil and place it on the grill to prevent them from falling through the grids.

  7. Grill the prepared sandwich for a few minutes on each side until bread is slightly toasted.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
Let the grilling begin ... with summer just around the corner :). Only instead of ribs or a juicy hamburger, its grilled veggie panini today. Serve this with a nice tall cool drink and your favorite chips. Enjoy! NOTE: I used a heavy cast iron skillet to press the sandwich down on the grill. This gives the sandwich ridges and the bread will grill to a perfect crisp on the outside.
