Turkey Apple Panini

This 3-Step Turkey Panini is complete with a creamy mustard spread to create an on-the-go dinner that’s packed with flavor and healthy ingredients. Complemented by sweet apple slices and melty Gouda, this panini is a dieter’s dream come true.

Warm up the panini maker or fire up the stove or grill—this recipe can be made with any of the three. To start, simply thoroughly mix ground mustard and Greek yogurt to create the creamy spread. On one slice of the bread, spread the mustard mixture and stack cheese, turkey, apple slices and arugula. Top with the other slice of bread and cook to crispy perfection. If using the panini maker, press the lid down and cook for a few minutes until crispy. If using the stovetop, grease a heated skillet with nonstick spray and place the panini in the center. Press the top of the sandwich with another pan or plate and push down on the sandwich for a few minutes, flip, and press the other side for a few minutes. Lastly, if you’re using a grill, spray both sides of the sandwich with nonstick spray, place the sandwich on the preheated grill, and cook each side for a few minutes or until crispy.
