Recipe: Apple-Gouda Panini
Apples and cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly, so why not try apples and cheese in sandwich form, too! To lighten this up a bit, you can make a quesadilla instead of a sandwich – simply all all ingredients in a tortilla instead of bread and grill in a large skillet!

- 8 slices whole-grain bread
- 1/4 cup low-fat honey mustard
- 2 crisp apples, thinly sliced (use different varieties to add more color!)
- 8 ounces Beemster Gouda cheese, thinly sliced (on sale now at Sigona’s)
- Cooking spray
Preheat a skillet or 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 + 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.
