Apple Cheddar Panini


There are few ways I like to eat green apples better than with cheddar (everything's better with cheddar!). Cheddar is an old favorite of mine. I grew up eating orange cheddar, then switched to white, and now look for extra sharp aged white cheddar. There's just nothing like it. It goes so nicely with crackers, eggs, toast, on its own, and with green apples.

Now that Autumn is here, apples are in abundance. I read somewhere recently that there are hundreds, even thousands, of varieties of apples. Among my favorites are Honey Crisp, Pink Lady, and Granny Smith. Try Granny Smith or Mutsu apples in this easy Panini.

Apple Cheddar Panini
Serves 1

2 slices cinnamon raisin bread
1/2 of a green apple, sliced
3-4 slices of sharp white cheddar
butter

Lightly butter each slice of bread. Layer apple and cheddar slices on the bread. Grill butter side out on a George Foreman grill (or you can put it in the toaster oven or on a grill pan) until golden. Enjoy!
