Heat indoor or outdoor grill, grill pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Grill panini, pressing occasionally with spatula and rotating one-quarter turn halfway through to create cross-hatched grill marks, until bottom is crusty, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook, pressing and rotating halfway through, until crusty and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.
