Chef Paul Penny from "Aussi in the Kitchen" is sharing some of his favorite Michigan Apple recipes. INGREDIENTS: 2 Michigan Apples*, thinly sliced 8 slices hearty whole wheat bread 2 tbsp. honey mustard 8 slices (approx. 8 oz.) 2% sharp cheddar cheese 8 thin slices deli roasted turkey
Suggested varieties: Cortland, Empire, Gala, Ida Red, Jonathan, Northern Spy, McIntosh, Paula Red, Rome, Honeycrisp
DIRECTIONS: Preheat the Panini press or grill. Spread the honey mustard evenly over each slice of bread. Layer apple slices, cheese and turkey over 4 slices of the bread. Top each with the remaining bread slices. Lightly coat the press or grill with vegetable cooking spray. Grill each sandwich for approx. 3 to 5 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted. Remove from pan and cut in half. Serve with a green salad for a quick and healthy lunch or dinner.
