Apple, Gouda and Crispy Prosciutto Panini

I don't know that I've ever use prosciutto in a recipe. I'm not sure how big of a fan I am of it-it is very salty and that's just one thing I don't particularly enjoy. This sandwich though, was very interesting. It had a lot of flavor to it and it definitely something I'd try again-or another variation of depending on what I have in the house.

Apple, Gouda and Crispy Proscuitto Panini

Apple, Gouda and Crispy Prosciutto Panini-adapted from Rodale's Easy Family Meals
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 2 ounces prosciutto
  • 4 teaspoons honey Dijon mustard
  • 8 slices french bread
  • 2 McIntosh apples, halved, cored, and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 ounces chipolte Gouda cheese, thinly sliced
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook the prosciutto for 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside on a paper towel.

Spread the mustard on 4 slices of the bread. Lay one-quarter of the apples (about 10 slices) atop the mustard on each bread slice. Top each with one-quarter of the prosciutto and cheese and 1 slice of the remaining bread. Lightly coat both sides of the sandwiches with cooking spray.
Heat the same skillet over medium heat and toast the sandwiches for 4 to 5 minutes per side, pressing down with a spatula often, until golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted.
