Raspberry Ham Panini



Hello! So, I know it's been awhile, but with the move and what-not, things have been a little crazy. Anyway...this sandwich is is a a mixture of a few different panini recipes I've come across. I make it fairly often using whatever I have...sometimes it's ham, sometimes it's turkey. Sometimes it's Swiss cheese, in this case it was muenster cheese. Regardless of what you put in it, it's VERY good! I always use seeded rye bread cause I absolutely love it, but I'm sure regular french bread would be fine as well. Maybe a little less flavorful, but still good. The raspberry preserves gives it a great sweet element and I just love how it tastes with the ham.

So...here's the recipe for this, and while I may not be here every day like I was before, I will be popping in every now and again to share some yummy recipes that I've tried recently. Take it easy!

'Raspberry Ham Panini'
Source: A bunch of different places

Ingredients

2 slices of seeded rye bread
raspberry preserves
5-8 leaves of baby spinach
sliced deli ham
1 slice muenster cheese
1/2 tablespoon butter spread

Directions

1. Heat the panini maker while assembling the sandwich. Spread the outside of both slices of bread with butter. Spread the inside of each slice with the raspberry preserves.

2. Layer first the spinach, then ham, then cheese and the top with bread slice butter side up.

3. Place in panini maker and cook for about 2 minutes.

** If you don't have a panini maker, that's perfectly fine. Just make this on the stove-top the same way you'd make a grilled cheese sandwich. It'll taste just as good **
