I'm really turning into a sandwich person. I still don't like them totally loaded down with oodles of gooey cheese but I am actually enjoying all of these grilled cheese variations, which has taken me by surprise. I will miss April, month of the grilled cheese because it has been fun. I look forward to months of grilling and salads and charred things but at least now I have added a whole new catagory to our dinner choices and I have something new to do with all that leftover grilled meat this summer apart from my go to vietnameseish noodle thing or feeding it to the dog (sorry Reno)
Cheesey Turkey Panini
makes two big sandwiches
2 tbls mayonnaise
1 tbls sundried tomato pesto
1 clove mashed, roasted garlic (i did my garlic with the caramelized onions)
2 chiabata buns
tomato pesto mayo
thinly sliced tomato
100 grams of sliced swiss cheese
100 grams of sweet mustard coated roast turkey
1 small onion, thinly sliced and caramelized along with 1 huge clove garlic
Cut buns in half. Mix the pesto mayo ingredients together and spread half of it on the bottom of one half of the bun. Next goes 1/4 of the cheese, top with half the onions, then slices of tomato and a final layer of 1/4 of the cheese. Put the top of the bun back and and wrap the sandwich in tinfoil.
Preheat the oven to 375F and put the sandwiches on a baking sheet. Cover them with a heavy cast iron skillet just like I did here and cook them for about 20 minutes.
|steamed artichokes with tzatziki was the perfect side dish|
