Amber wrote on facebook about a panini she had at Cafe Espresso. She made it at home and loved it just as much, and talked about it on line.
Here is my version:
2 slices of whole wheat bread
2 t softened butter
3 slices crisp bacon
5 short slices delicious cheddar cheese (to cover 1 slice of bread)
6 or 8 thin slices of gala apple (most of a 1/2 of a small apple)
1 slice american cheese
Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Layer cheddar on the unbuttered side of 1 slice
Add apple slices
Split bacon slices in half, and layer over the apples
Layer a slice of american cheese over the bacon
Over low heat, put a teflon pan on the stove Place the slice of bread with contents in a heated teflon pan. Place the second slice of bread on the sandwich, buttered side up. Saute until brown and carefully flip the sandwich to brown the second side.
Once the panini is toasted, cut into quarters and enjoy! It's even better once the sandwich cools a bit and is just a little warm. Enjoy!
