Step 1
12 • Roma tomatoes
1 tbsp • Fresh thyme • chopped
3 tbsp • Extra-virgin olive oil
2 clove • Garlic
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Using a sharp knife, remove the tomato stem and slice a small cross on to the bottom of tomato.

Submerge in boiling water for 1 minute and remove immediately to an ice water bath.

Peel skins from tomatoes and slice into 1/4" rounds. Place in a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients, salt and pepper.

Lay tomatoes flat on a lined baking sheet and cook for 45 minutes to one hour or until the tomatoes have lost most of the liquid.
Step 2
12 slice • Country bread
12 tbsp • Butter
9 oz • tomato confit
1 lb • Joe Matos St. George cheese • (sliced thinly)
Place bread on a flat space and place equal amounts of cheese on all slices. Add tomatoes, making sure that they do not come into direct contact with bread, only cheese.

Close sandwiches and spread butter evenly on the outside of the sandwiches.

Using a Panini press or a large pan, cook sandwiches until golden brown on the outside and the cheese is melted through. If you use a pan instead of a press, we suggest you toast the sandwich until golden brown on both sides and finish in a 350 degree oven to melt cheese.
