1 .   Preheat grill in the closed position.

2 .   Brush one side of each slice of bread with the oil. Lay 2 slices of bread on a work surface, oiled side down, and spread with the honey mustard.  Build the sandwiches in this order: apple, onion and Brie, evenly dividing the ingredients between the sandwiches. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt and top with remaining bread, oiled side up.

3 .   Place sandwiches on the bottom grill plate and close, applying medium pressure to the handle for 30 seconds. Grill panini for 4 to 5 minutes.

4 .   Allow panini to rest for about 2 minutes. Cut in half on the diagonal and serve warm.
