Hawaiian Paninis with Grilled Pineapple


Description

Hawaiian Paninis

Ingredients

4  
Sweet Hawaiian Foldits from Flatout (or sub plain)
7 ounces
hickory smoked ham
8 ounces
shredded mozzarella cheese
4 slices
pineapple rounds (grilled or fresh*)
8  
golden grape tomatoes
2  
small pearl onions (thinly sliced, optional)
   
handful of your favorite greens (I used baby butter lettuce)
1 cup
plain Siggi's yogurt (for the sauce --- or sub Greek yogurt)
1 tablespoon
Brown Mustard (for the sauce)
1 tablespoon
honey (for the sauce)

Notes

*You can pre-grill the pineapple slices before you put them in the panini. This really brings out their sweetness. BUT, if you're pressed for time, adding them in fresh works too.

Instructions

  1. Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl: yogurt, mustard, and honey. Stir to combine, then set aside. 
  2. Heat up your outdoor grill (or George Foreman grill) to medium high.
  3. Assemble your panini. On half of the Foldit, layer a few pieces of ham, a round of pineapple slice (about 1 cm thick), and 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese (enough to cover the pineapple). On the other side, add a layer of greens, a few tomato slices and a few pearl onion slices (omit them if you don't love onion like my hubby!). 
  4. Grill on each side for 2 -3 minutes (or press it in the George Foreman so it grills both sides at the same time). Cheese should be melted and outside should have grill marks and be a light golden brown. 
  5. Serve immediately with a large dollop of the yogurt sauce. 
  6. Enjoy!
