Turkey and Tomato Panini

Submitted by: TORILEE86
Turkey and Tomato Panini

Introduction

This is a great, healthy lunch option. I added some baby spinach to my panini. The sandwich was very filling and if you wanted to serve it for dinner, it would be great paired with a soup or veggies.

Ingredients

    1 tbsp light mayo
    1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
    1 tsp basil
    1/2 tbsp lemon juice
    2 slices whole wheat bread (or bread of your choice)
    2 oz thinly sliced deli turkey breast
    1 tomato slice
    1 tsp canola oil (if you don't have a sandwich/panini grill)
    pepper to taste

Directions

This panini is super easy to make if you already have a sandwich or panini grill. I used a sandwich grill, but if you don't have one you can create the same effect following these instructions. If you do have a sandwich grill, just assemble the panini and put it in the grill.

1. Have four 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (not nonstick) ready by the stove.
2. Combine mayonnaise, , Parmesan, basil, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl. Spread the mixture on each slice of bread.
3. Assemble the panini: turkey, tomato, shredded cheese, and baby spinach (if desired)
4. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place panini in the pan. Place the medium skillet on top of the panini, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the panini until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the panini, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more.

*If you have a panini/sandwich grill you can just grill the sandwich once assembled. Takes about 5 minutes.
