Mini Ham and Gruyère Panini Triangles

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 24


  • 12 slices white sandwich bread
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 6 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 9 oz. thinly sliced Black Forest ham
  • 6 oz. thinly sliced Gruyère cheese


Preheat an electric panini press to medium-high heat according to the manufacturers instructions.

Brush one side of 6 of the bread slices with olive oil. Lay the slices, oiled side down, on a clean work surface and brush the tops of each slice with 1 tsp. mustard. Place 1 1/2 oz. ham and 1 oz. cheese on each of the 6 slices. Top each with one of the plain bread slices and brush the tops with olive oil.

Place 3 of the sandwiches on the preheated panini press and cook according to the manufacturers instructions until crispy and dark golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.

Cut the crusts off the sandwiches. Cut each sandwich diagonally and then diagonally again, forming 4 triangles. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately. Makes 24 hors d'oeuvres.
