Ham, Gruyere and Apple Panini

These sandwiches are super easy to make, and they are so very yummy! Apples and thyme really go well together.

The original recipe came from Giada de Laurentiis.

Makes: 2 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes


  • 4 slices thick white or Italian bread
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored, peeled and cut into 1/4" slices
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/2 t dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 4 slices thick sandwich ham
  • Panini press

1. Preheat panini press.

2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple and thyme and cook until the apples are somewhat soft, about 5 minutes.

3. Slather one side of each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon mustard each. Top each with 1/4 cup of the cheese and one slice of ham. Add apples.

4. Put on panini press and grill until golden and the cheese has melted, 4-5 minutes.
