I am SO excited that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It really gets me through frustrating or stressful parts of my day! I even made my very first homemade pie today (okay so the crust was Pillsbury's but no one knew and it was SO easy that way!)- recipe to come soon- and it got me excited for the best pie day of the year. Mmm!
So anyways... this sandwich. Is amazing! It's probably the best sandwich I've ever had. Well I guess it's technically a panini, not a sandwich although it falls under the latter category. The key to this recipe is the sourdough bread. You have to use it. No substitutions. I know it just won't be the same. It might taste alright. But not amazing, knock-your-socks off good! My husband and I both raved over it. And the best part- it is so dang easy and uses very few ingredients! A winner recipe for sure. I'm sure this would be great with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers also!
Sourdough Turkey Pesto Panini
from Cooking Light
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
4 teaspoons basil pesto
8 (1-ounce) thin slices sourdough bread
8 ounces sliced cooked turkey breast
2 ounces thinly sliced provolone cheese
8 (1/8-inch-thick) slices tomato
Combine mayonnaise and pesto, stirring well. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture on each of 4 bread slices; top each slice with 2 ounces turkey, 1/2 ounce cheese, and 2 tomato slices. Top with remaining bread slices.
Preheat grill pan or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add sandwiches to pan; top with another heavy skillet (or you can put in a panini press or indoor grill). Cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
