Apple, Swiss, Dijon Panini

I've been eating apples and cheese together since I was little. Usually apple slices topped with a hunk of cheddar and sometimes with peanut butter slathered on. I love the sweet and salty combination. Melty brie with apples and pecans is one of my favorite things during the holidays. The other night I had no idea what to make so I started pulling random ingredients out of the fridge and I came up with my new favorite panini- apples, swiss cheese and a little dijon mustard on french bread. So delicious.

 Ingredients you will need. I also use canola oil spray on the bread before grilling and then I add a little unsalted butter to the pan.

 Spread a little mustard (just a little as dijon is really strong) add a slice of cheese, top with thinly sliced apples, add another layer of cheese then top with another piece of bread and cook in a little butter on medium-high heat until desired doneness. I like mine really toasty. If you're making a lot of them, place the already cooked paninis in a warm oven until you're ready to serve.

 Mmmmm....I wish I had one right now. I served a mixed greens salad with cucumbers and radishes on the side drizzled with balsamic vinagrette.

How do you like to eat your apples?


  1. This looks delicious, I think I may have to make this for a quick dinner tonight! I love apples with really thick peanut butter like Maranatha or very sharp cheese.

    Congrats on your little girl!!

  2. Oh heavens yes! What a marvelous panini! I love the combination of crisp apples and cheese as well. Simply divine!


  3. Yummy! I just wrote about that mustard from TJ's too... I never think to use "good" bread for sandwiches... looks like it really makes a big difference!
