Prep Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6


  • Revolution Toaster
  • Revolution Panini Press


For the Sweet Potatoes:

  • 1 Sweet potato (sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the Brussels Sprouts:

  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts (shredded )
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the Panini:

  • 1 loaf sliced sandwich bread
  • Harry & David® Sharp White Cheddar Cheese (thinly sliced)
  • Harry & David® Gouda Cheese (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Harry & David® Apple (cored and thinly sliced)
  • 1 Harry & David® Royal Riviera Pear (cored and thinly sliced)


  • Preheat your oven to 400° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Then spread the sweet potato slices out in a single layer. Drizzle them with the olive oil, turning to coat them on both sides. Then season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the baking sheet to your preheated oven and roast the sweet potatoes until they are cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes. They should be tender and starting to brown in some places. Remove the baking sheet from your oven and set it aside.
  • Meanwhile, toss the shredded Brussels sprouts in a medium bowl with the olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

Assemble your sandwiches:

  • Place a layer of sliced cheese (either cheddar or gouda) on one slice of bread. Top with 2 to 3 slices of the cooked sweet potato, about 2 tablespoons of the shredded Brussels sprouts, and then 2 to 3 slices of either the apple or pear. Place a second slice of bread on top and press down gently.
  • Transfer the sandwich to the Revolution Panini Press and close it with the interlocking hinges. Then place it in the right side of your Revolution Toaster and cook following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Carefully remove the Panini Press from your toaster and lay it flat on a cutting board. Open and transfer the sandwich to the cutting board. Let it rest for about 2 minutes before slicing in half. Enjoy immediately.
