8 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American

8 ounces sliced deli ham

8 pickle planks

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter melted

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat panini press.

  2. STEP 2

    Cut each bread section horizontally, leaving 1 side attached.

  3. STEP 3

    Open cut bread; spread bottom with 1 tablespoon mustard. Top with 1 cheese slice, 1/4 ham slices, 2 pickle planks and 1 cheese slice. Press top of cut bread down over filling. Brush outside of bread with about 2 teaspoons butter.

    Place 2 sandwiches into press. Close press; cook 6-8 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

Tip #1

If you don’t have a panini press, heat skillet over medium heat. Place 1 or 2 sandwiches into skillet. Place another skillet on top of sandwiches to flatten them. Cook, turning once, 6-8 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
