Sharp, sweet and smoky. A hearty sandwich that goes perfectly with tomato soup on a cold day or fresh fruit in the summer.
- 8 slices country-style white bread
- 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
- 8 slices bacon, cooked
- 1 granny smih apple, thinly sliced
- Dijon mustard
- Heat panini press to medium-low heat.
- Spread Dijon on 4 slices of bread. Top with slices of Cheddar, 2 pieces of bacon, apple slices and additional Cheddar. Place the remaining bread on top.
- Place on panini press and cook until cheese is slightly melted and bread is browned and crispy.
Scrumptious lunch! I used homemade whole wheat bread, turkey bacon, and instead of dijon I used Miracle whip for some extra tang. I grilled it up on my George Foreman for a great summer lunch. Thanks, KelBel!
Made these for breakfast this morning; they come together beautifully, look very appetizing, and the smell is awesome. This made a VERY hearty sandwich (I used small French bread loaves); Hubby will have one in his lunch tomorrow too, and DD will re-heat & finish hers for lunch today! I subbed Braeburn apples for the Grannies, and they held up well under the heat. Next time I make them, though, I'll use mild Cheddar and honey-mustard; the Dijon didn't sit well with my kids or me--too tangy and didn't seem to compliment the apples & cheese the way I expected. My "panini" maker is two cast-iron skillets nested together--works very nicely. I brushed the pans with olive oil first which gave a nice glow to the finished product. Thanks for a very nice recipe! It's one I'm sure we'll play with and "update" for our tastebuds. Sorry I couldn't rate it any higher (I wanted to!), but it just didn't knock our socks off (which is MY scale for 4- and 5-star recipes).
