Harvest Panini

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Kitchen and Bath

One of the best meals to make for your family during those chilly fall nights is everybody’s favorite meal—grilled cheese. It’s something that virtually everyone enjoys from children to adults. There are so many great variations on this American classic, but this time of year a grilled cheese made of gouda, green onions, chile butter and corn has just right touch of fall harvest. Spice it up even more and add some substance by adding baked and cubed sweet potatoes. 

 

These ingredients come together to create the perfect fall sandwich but you will need to make a quick run to the grocery store for the following ingredients:

 

  • 4 tablespoons butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon chile powder 
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1 loaf of sourdough bread
  • 8 slices of gouda and 8 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of corn (can be canned or fresh off of the cob)
  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • 1 sweet potato 

 

  1. The first thing you will want to do is preheat the oven to 425 degrees. While the oven is preheating, cube the sweet potato. Place the cubes evenly spread along a cookie sheet and lightly cover them in olive oil. Spread salt over per your tastes. Once preheated, place the sheets into the oven and cook for 30 minutes. Check at 30 minutes and if they need more time to brown. Cook for more time if necessary.
  2. Next, mix the butter (microwave if necessary), cayenne pepper and chile powder until mixed.
  3. Preheat your panini maker. Or prepare your pan if you will be cooking the sandwiches in a frying pan.
  4. Spread your butter mixture on the outside of each slice of bread. Assemble your sandwiches next. Put down your cheese first. You can mix and match or do strictly one cheese or the other. Top with corn and scallions and sweet potatoes. Finally put another slice on top with the butter side facing out. 
  5. Grill your sandwiches in either your panini maker or in your pan until cheese is melted. and each side is properly toasted.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a minute.

 

Now enjoy your fall inspired Harvest Panini!
