Apple and Bacon Panini


Hey ya'll! I hope you had a wonderful Halloween! We had a great time trick-or-treating with friends and watching a fun parade. It's hard to believe that it's over already.

I made this panini after making that delicious Anadama bread and looking for any excuse to make sandwiches! I'd never tried the cheddar-apple-bacon combo before, but let me tell you, it's awesome! The bread was nutty, the apples were sweet, and the bacon, well, the bacon was awesome as always.

The only thing I would do differently next time is maybe adding a thin drizzle of maple syrup, or a layer of Dijon mustard, just to give a bit more richness. Otherwise, I loved this sandwich, I'll definitely be making it again!

Apple Bacon Panini

Ingredients

3 slices center cut bacon

There is nothing I don't adore about Panini's. This sounds simple and awesome. except maybe the cheese ( intolerant) . Which I can pass. Maybe I can do a pickle slice?...

Thanks so much

my kids have a serious allergy (at least they think they do) to foods that have been naturally grown. so, they would pick off the apples, but i know they'd love the cheese adn bacon!
