Grilled Cheese Arugula Panini Watermelon Recipe

  • 4 slices watermelon, approximately 4”X4"X ½" thick
  • 8 slices 100% whole grain bread, preferably chewy in texture (Dave’s Killer Bread is great!)
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 6 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, divided into 4 equal portions
  • 1 bottle cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups baby arugula
  1. Place watermelon pieces between paper towels to absorb extra fluid. Set aside.
  2. On each of four slices of bread, spread mustard and top with 1 1 /2 ounces cheese. Top with second slice of bread.
  3. On a griddle or Forman grill, spray cooking spray and grill the 4 sandwiches on each side until cheese begins to melt. Remove from griddle/grill, open and place a slice of watermelon and arugula. Close sandwich and cut in half. Serve.
