Step 1

Preheat a waffle iron with 4 compartments to high.

Step 2

Place a paper towel on a microwave safe plate. Arrange the bacon on paper towel; cover with an additional paper towel. Microwave the bacon at high for 4 minutes or until done. (This is to conserve time, if you want to cook it in the oven you can, it will just add time to the recipe).

Step 3

Combine the mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl. Spread about 1 1/4 teaspoons mayonnaise mixture over each bread slice.

Step 4

Divide the bacon, turkey, apple slices, and cheese evenly among 4 bread slices; top with the remaining bread slices, spread side down.

Step 5

Lightly coat both sides of sandwiches with the cooking spray. Place 1 sandwich in each compartment of the waffle iron; close the waffle iron firmly on the sandwiches. Place a heavy skillet on top of the waffle iron to help flatten the sandwiches evenly. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese melts.
