  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 4


  • 1 can (15.8 oz) BUSH'S® Great Northern Beans, drained
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 8 slices whole wheat or other crusted bread
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Brush butter on outer side of each slice of bread.
  2. Add half of the beans to a bowl and mash gently with a potato masher or the back of a fork. Stir in remaining whole beans. Spread evenly on the inner side of 4 slices of bread.
  3. Mix onion, celery, mayonnaise and salt in the bean bowl; spread on top of beans. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and top with remaining slices of bread, buttered side facing up.
  4. Using a panini press, baking sheet or skillet, toast the melts on both sides. Let rest several minutes so cheese does not run when cut. Cut and serve.
