Spread amount of mustard desired on each slice of bread. On one slice, arrange the remaining ingredients over mustard. Top with other slice, mustard-side down.


Butter the outside of the sandwich. Cook in a preheated panini grill, or cook in a skillet over medium-low heat until golden on one side. Flip and cook until second side is lightly browned and cheese is well melted.


Serve with Russian dressing on the side. Use about 1 tablespoon per sandwich.
