15 min
Serves 1 person


  • 2 slices artisan bread, about 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil (suitable for high temperature cooking)or melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Handful of baby spinach
  • 1/4 pound sliced deli roast beef, more or less to taste
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese


Step 1

Prepare to cook—Fit your GreenPan contact grill with grill plates. Turn dial to “Both” and preheat to 175°C in the closed position. Set timer for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Prep the panini—Lightly brush one side of each bread slice with olive oil or butter. Place one slice, oil side down, on a clean work surface. Spread with 1 tablespoon mayo and scatter a handful of spinach across the top. Add sliced roast beef, then cheese, and top with the other piece of bread, oiled side up.

Step 3

Cook the panini—Place sandwich in on bottom griddle plate. Close lid and press start. Cook sandwich for 5 minutes or until bread is crisp and cheese is melted. 

Step 4

Finish and serve—Carefully remove sandwich with a wooden or silicone spatula and let it rest a couple of minutes before slicing and serving.


Quick tips:

Mix it Up—Try swapping roast beef for ham or turkey, trade Swiss for cheddar, and add in your favorite sandwich spread and toppings. Delicious—any way you slice it!
