Recipe from

Southern Living


Sharp white Cheddar
Golden Delicious apples, thinly sliced
Toasted pecans
Slider buns or dinner rolls
Honey mustard
Butter, softened


Place Cheddar, apple slices, and toasted pecans on slider buns or dinner rolls spread with honey mustard. Spread outside of sandwiches with butter. Cook in a pre-heated panini press 2 to 3 minutes or until golden.

Wine Suggestion: "A good cool-climate Chardonnay would be great with this one, but I would encourage giving white Rhône a try. Rich and exotic, these wines possess wonderful food affinity and crowd-pleasing versatility. Try La Vieille Ferme from the Luberon ($8), Côtes du Rhône Blanc from Famille Perrin ($11), or E. Guigal ($14)." --Richard Robinson, Wine Director, The Wine Shop at Western Supermarket, Mountain Brook, Alabama
