I love sandwiches. One of the hardest parts of being pregnant for me is not being able to eat a cold-cut sandwich. And sometimes you need a nice sandwich to really fuel your day, right?! Well, when you’re pregnant, they say you can microwave your cold-cuts and then make them into a sandwich…but let’s be honest, once a cold-cut is warm the whole sandwich needs to be warm. Enter the panini.

We decided to make ham & cheese paninis the other night for dinner and used Alpine Lace Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese for the cheese portion of this delicious sandwich.

To make the perfect ham & cheese panini (whether you’re pregnant or not) you need: ham, Alpine Lace Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, dijon mustard, and a nice bread – we used fresh ciabatta.

Assemble your sammy (don’t forget to mic the ham if you’re pregnant!) including a nice spread of mustard…and press. We use a hot grill pan and put the sammies under a heavy sandwich press.

Look at that…and the melty cheese, so good!

We had this for dinner with a side of broccoli slaw. The Alpine Lace Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese was the perfect cheese for this panini! My life has many ingredients – one of my favorites?
