Melted cheese with slightly softened, but not mushy apple. Toasty bread.

(For now, anyway.)

Enjoy this panini! :)

Ham, Cheddar & Apple Panini

Serves 1-2


  • 1 Loaf ciabatta or focaccia style bread
  • 1 apple (I use Gala)
  • 3-4 slices of deli ham
  • 8 Oz. block of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 Tablespoons honey
  • olive oil for brushing the bread


Preheat panini press to high heat. Cut off desired amount of bread for one generous panini. Cut this bread in half lengthwise down the middle.
Drizzle the two cut halves of bread evenly with the honey.
Layer ham on the bottom half of bread. Slice cheese 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick, enough to form a single layer over the ham. Slice apple thinly and place one layer on top of the cheese (I used about a quarter of the apple).
Top with the remaining bread and brush the outside of the panini with olive oil.
Cook for about 10-15 minutes on panini press or until the cheese melts and drips down the sides and the bread is toasted. Serve immediately.
