A spicy pimento aioli adds amazing flavor to these easy Spanish-influenced sandwiches.

Ingredients

Reduced calorie mayonnaise

¼ cup(s)

Thin whole wheat sandwich bread (roll)

4 item(s), split opened

Paprika

1 tsp, smoked

Serrano ham

4 oz

Shredded manchego cheese

10 Tbsp

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Table salt

1 pinch, optional

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and paprika; spread about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture on each roll bottom. Layer each sandwich with 1 ounce ham and 2 1/2 tablespoons cheese; cover with roll tops.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Coat both sides of sandwiches lightly with cooking spray; sprinkle tops with salt. Cook sandwiches, about 2 to 3 minutes per side, until cheese is melted. Slice each in half and serve warm. Yields 2 panini halves per serving.

Notes

The directions above are for cooking the sandwich in a skillet. If you prefer to make your sandwich open-face (as photographed), divide all the ingredients evenly between the bread tops and bottoms and broil until the cheese melts.
