Ham & Brie Panini

Ham Brie Panini  









2 slices rustic bread

2 slices smoked ham or turkey

3 tsp. mayonnaise

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tsp. pepper jelly, mango chutney or marmalade would also work, or sour cherry jam or cranberry jam

3 slices brie cheese, thick

1/2 crisp, tart apple, (such as Granny Smith), thinly sliced

Handful spinach


Heat the panini press or skillet to medium heat.

Spread one slice of bread with the mayonnaise and mustard. Spread the other slice with the pepper jelly or chutney.

Fold the ham or turkey slices in half and place on one slice of bread, top with the apple slices. On the other slice of bread layer on the brie cheese.

Carefully close sandwich, spread the outsides with a bit more mayo, and place in the Panini press. Cook until sandwiches are golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Alternately, place the sandwiches on a grill pan or skillet and cook for about 5 minutes per side, compressing them slightly with a spatula.

Remove from the pan, add some spinach and serve.
