  • 1/2 cup stone-ground mustard (or Dijon is amazing too!)
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 8 slices of pumpernickel bread (thickly sliced)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 8 oz Black Forest ham
  • 4 oz Brie cheese


  1. In a bowl mix together the mustard, parsley and lemon zest.
  2. Brush one side of each of the slices of bread with olive oil.
  3. Spread the mustard mixture evenly on the insides of the bread slices (the side without the oil).
  4. Add the ham and Brie cheese.
  5. Cover with a slice of bread (olive oil side out). Press together gently.
  6. Cook in a preheated panini press or skillet. If you are using a skillet, flip the sandwiches once and cook for about 3 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy right away!
