Cheddar and Apple Butter Panini with Rosemary Candied Pecans

I don’t know exactly how many panini recipes I’ve posted featuring cheddar and apples (four come to mind) but it’s got to be one of my favorite combinations. I couldn’t help but come up with yet one more once I read this Rosemary Apple Butter Grilled Cheese post on Framed Cooks. The addition of fragrant, woodsy rosemary sounded just brilliant.

I sought to integrate this perennial herb into my latest cheddar-and-apples panini in two ways. First, I tossed together some rosemary candied pecans to add a little sweet crunch and gentle heat (I spiced them with cayenne as well) to the sandwiches (caution: these pecans are very addictive!). Second, I grilled it all on buttered rosemary bread.

I’m sharing the recipe for these Cheddar and Apple Butter Panini with Rosemary Candied Pecans over on Herbivoracious today – be sure to check out my guest post!
