Turkey Panini

Long ago, when we lived in an apartment in Orem, we had what we called dinner group with two of our neighbors. Every Tuesday, Kristen cooked, every Wednesday, Megan cooked, and every Thursday, I cooked. When it was our night to cook, we'd make enough food for all six adults, and then we'd send a text (or just yell out the door :) when it was ready. Everyone would take their plates, go pick up food, and go home to eat. It. Was. Heavenly. You got a good meal three nights a week, but you only had to cook and clean up once. Also, while we were dishing up our food we could chat, but then we could go home and eat with our husbands. Also, (I just keeps getting better!) it expanded our repertoire of recipes! It was a sad day when we all moved away and dinner group ended.

ANYWAY, this recipe is a result of dinner group and comes from my cute friend, Megan. It is yummy and filling enough for dinner, or light and quick enough for lunch. You probably have everything you need already in your fridge, too. You really can't go wrong!
2 slices of bread, pita bread, or tortilla (pictures)
2 slices deli turkey
4 THIN slices green apple (I'm sure any apple would do)
1-2 slices cheese
1 tsp mustard (or less, you just want a tiny hint of flavor)
Dusting of powdered sugar

Assemble and place on panini maker or George Forman grill. If you don't have either, you could just do it in a frying pan, rotating so both sides are toasted.

Cook until bread/tortilla is toasted and cheese is melted. Dust with powdered sugar. 

I know this sounds random and somewhat bizarre, but the flavors combine so well and are just delicious. Let us know if you try it!
