Mertzie's Grilled Apples, Ham & Swiss Panini

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


My obsession with my panini press continues! This is a nice little sandwich, especially for the fall.
The dijon balances the sweet apples & cinnamon nicely. My friend just told me about using mayonnaise to coat the outer slices of bread for panini, and it is wonderful!

  1. Ingredients listed above are for each sandwich. Heat the panini press. Toss the apple slices with cinnamon & grill these for a few on the panini press.
  2. Spread one side of each bread slice with mayonnaise. (This will be the outer side to cook. Makes a lovely crust).
  3. Spread inside of bread (one slice) with dijon. Lay slices of ham on top. Then, layer with Swiss, and grilled apples. Add some fresh spinach leaves, if you like. Put other slice of bread on top & grill on panini press until nice & golden. Enjoy!
