  • 2 fresh Ciabatta Buns (6″ in length)
  • 3 Tbl butter, softened
  • 8 thin slices, baked ham
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 cups grated Jarlsberg Cheese
  • 1620 artichoke hearts (smaller sized)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat the Panini press. If you don’t have a panini press, wrap a brick with aluminum foil and get out a non-stick pan.
  2. Spread 2 Tbl butter on the outside of the buns, reserving 1 Tbl for the inside (1/2 tsp each).
  3. Laying the bottom halves of the bun, buttered side down on a piece of plastic wrap start assembling the sandwich.
  4. Layer 4 slices of ham down on each sandwich, top with the artichoke hearts, add the spinach and Jarlsberg cheese.
  5. Sprinkle on the garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  6. Place the top of the buns, buttered side up.
  7. Lifting the lid of the panini press, add the buns and close the lid. If working with brick, heat up your pan to medium and add the sandwich. Cool for 3-5 minutes or until the one side is crispy/golden brown. When you flip it, then add the brick.
  8. Cook until the cheese is melted, ooey and gooey!
