Roasted Grape and Cheddar Panini

  • Author: Misfits Market



For the roasted grapes:

  • 1 lb. red seedless grapes, cleaned and stems removed
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • ¼ tsp. thyme leaves
  •  ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

For the sandwich:

  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, room temperature
  • 6 oz. cheddar or your favorite cheese
  • Optional: sliced deli meat (prosciutto, salami, turkey, ham), leafy greens (arugula, spinach)


  1. For the roasted grapes, heat the oven to 400F. Add all of the ingredients to a baking sheet and toss to combine. Roast for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  2. For the panini, generously butter one side of each slice of bread. Place a slice of bread on a plate, buttered side down, then stack with layers of cheese and roasted grapes, plus deli meats and leafy greens if using. Top with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up.
  3. Place sandwich in a panini press and cook until golden brown on both sides. If cooking on the stovetop, heat a grill pan over medium heat. Place both sandwiches in the pan then put a heavy piece of cookware (like a cast-iron pan) on top to press the panini down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, flip and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
  4. Slice paninis in half and serve immediately.
