If you don´t have a panini press, just use a non-stick skillet to make these tasty sandwiches. Just about any cheese can be substituted for Cheddar.


8 slices whole-grain Bread
1/4 cup low-fat honey Mustard
2 crisp Apples, thinly sliced
8 ounces low-fat Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
Cooking Spray


Preheat panini press on medium heat. Lightly spread honey mustard evenly over each slice of bread. Layer apple slices and cheese over 4 slices of bread, using about ½ apple and 2 ounces of cheese for each sandwich. Top each with remaining bread slices. Lightly coat panini press with cooking spray. Grill each sandwich for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese has melted and bread has toasted. Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly before serving.
