A Taste of Bavaria: German-inspired Grilled Cheese

 Active time: 7 min Cook time: 2 min Serves: 1

This German-inspired panini is sure to level up your lunch routine. Simply add a little bit of sauerkraut to your ham and Swiss panini. We think a hot, melty sandwich trumps a cold one any day! 



  • 2 slices white bread
  • 3 oz. Emmentaler or Swiss cheese, sliced
  • 4 slices cured ham
  • 1/4 cup sauerkraut, drained  



  • On the first slice, layer Swiss cheese, ham, and sauerkraut overtop. 
  • Now close it up with the other piece of bread. See how easy that was?


  • Now place it in the Toastie Press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
  • Place the filled Toastie Press into the right slot of your toaster with the handles facing out.

Now make your next selection based on the model you have:
