The Basic Fundamentals

Hot Whiskey Mustard
12 Swiss cheese slices, quartered
12 ounces Smoked Pulled Pork
Classic Dill Pickle Chips
3 Tbsp melted butter
Garnish: Freshly ground pepper

Spread one side of each bread slice with the Hot Whiskey Mustard. Layer half of the bread pieces with half of the cheese, the pork, a few Classic Dill Pickle Chips & the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining pieces of bread, mustard side down. Brush the tops with half of the melted butter & place 6 to 8 at a time buttered side down on a hot panini press. Brush with additional butter & cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese melts. Serve with additional dill pickles & mustard. Garnish, if desired.
