Ingredients

Horseradish Sauce

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp horseradish
  • 2 med green onions minced

Roast Beef Panini

  • 8 slices sourdough bread or multigrain
  • 12 oz leftover roast beef thinly sliced
  • 6 oz sharp cheddar cheese sliced
  • 1 med apple thinly sliced
  • olive oil for the pan and brushing the bread

Instructions

Horseradish Sauce

  • In a medium bowl, mix together all the horseradish sauce ingredients. Set aside

Roast Beef Panini

  • Heat a grill pan or panini press. Pull out 4 slices of bread. Brush one side of each slice with olive oil and lay them oiled side down. Layer each slice of bread with the roast beef, apple slices, and cheddar cheese, dividing the toppings equally. Top each panini with a slice of bread and oil the top of the bread.
  • Once the panini pan is hot, add a little oil to the pan. Add the paninis and either press them with the panini press or use a flat weight on top of the bread. Grill until they are golden brown on both sides. I use a grill pan with a weight; it takes 2-3 per side to grill the paninis.
  • Remove the paninis from the pan, pry up the top slice of bread and add the horseradish mayonnaise. Slice in half and serve.

Notes

I used a Honeycrisp apple. I love the flavor and they stay white longer than many other varieties.
 
If you don't have leftover roast beef and want a panini, use deli roast beef.
