  1. Heat a Panini press on medium-high heat. When the press is hot, lightly spray the press with oil. Lay all of the onion slices on the press and close the lid. Cook for 5 minutes until the onions are soft.
  2. Meanwhile, spread mustard on each of 4 slices of the bread.
  3. When onions are finished cooking, divide the onion mixture among the 4 slices of bread that have mustard on them. Top each with 3 oz. of pastrami, then 2 oz. of cheese, and ¼ of the avocado slices.
  4. Place the remaining bread slices on each sandwich and place in the Panini press two at a time. Close the lid and cook for 3–4 minutes until hot and the cheese has melted. Repeat with remaining two sandwiches. Serve immediately.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
