Ham & Swiss Panini with Apples, Honey & Avocado-Mustard Spread


  • 1 ea. Avocado From Mexico, halved, pitted & skin removed
  • 2 T. whole-grain mustard
  • 1 T. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t. white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 t. kosher salt
  • 2 T. salted butter
  • 4 ea. slices seeded or whole grain bread
  • 4 oz. Jarlsberg or other Swiss-style cheese
  • 1/2 ea. honey crisp apple, cored & thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb. black forest ham
  • 2 t. clover honey


  1. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until chunky-smooth. Add the mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, and salt and mix until well combined.
  2. Spread 1/2 T. butter on one side of each piece of bread, and place on a cutting board, buttered-side down.
  3. Divide the avocado-mustard spread evenly among all 4 slices of bread. Add 1 oz. Jarlsberg on top of each piece of bread. Then, divide the apple slices among all 4 sandwiches, and top each with equal amount of ham. Drizzle each sandwich with 1/2 t. honey.
  4. Turn one stack upside down on top of another, ham-to-ham, to create two layered panini sandwiches with buttered-sides facing outwards.
  5. Preheat a griddle or grill-pan over medium heat. Place sandwiches onto griddle or pan and 3- 4 minutes per side, until bread is golden brown and crisp, and cheese is melty. Press down on sandwiches as they cook, if necessary.
  6. Cut paninis in half diagonally and serve immediately.
