Autumn Harvest Panini



I realized that I have an obsession with making panini's. They are so easy to make and what's better than a crusty piece of bread smooshed and toasted with yummy fillings? Nothing that's what! OK maybe there's a few things like those tator tots. Not even half of them make it on this blog. That's because they are gone before I can even take a picture. 



My other half works from home on Mondays so lunch is always made fresh. He usually gets a panini. He got this one. Except this time I was able to photograph it quickly so it remained warm and toasty. He loved it. Score!


This is the perfect lunch for two. Turkey, cheddar, apple, baby kale and honey dijon all in perfect harmony. Toasted to perfection! This is the perfect Autumn Harvest Panini. 
...................................................................................................................................................................
Ingredients
4 slices whole grain bread

4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoon honey dijon mustard

4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

8 thin slices deli roasted turkey

1 apple honeycrisp sliced

8 baby kale leaves

Directions
Preheat the panini press or grill. Spread the outer side of each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon butter.

Spread the mustard evenly over two slices of bread. Layer with apple slices, cheese and turkey and kale. Top each with the remaining bread slices.

Grill each sandwich for 3 to 5 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted. Remove from pan, cut in half and serve immediately.

Serves 2

  9. I saw your link on thrifty Thursday and had to click. This looks so good. I was going to say even better then tater tots, but now that I see your tots I'm not sure that's true. I'm definitely going to have to try and make both of them later.

    1. Hi Heather thanks so much! I used my cast iron grill pan and weighed the panini down with another cast iron pan. Any panini press will do as well. :)
