Easily grilled on a panini press or George Foreman grill.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat panini press or other sandwich maker--I use a George Foreman grill.
  2. Spread 4 slices of bread with pesto on one side and the other 4 slices of bread with mayonnaise.
  3. Divide the turkey, tomato slices, onion slices, and cheese equally among mayonnaise-dressed bread slices.
  4. Top with remaining bread slices, pesto side down; brush tops with butter.
  5. Brush the bottom of the panini press with butter.
  6. Add 2 sandwiches, close lid, and cook about 5 minutes or until lightly browned and cheese is melted.
  7. Repeat to make the other two sandwiches.
  8. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.

Very good. Love the taste of the pesto in this. I scaled this down to one sandwich, and had to use a sharp cheddar, as I was out of gouda. Delish. Thanks!

As I said in another panini review, I got on a panini kick when Austin got iced in for 3 days, last winter. I tried several recipes, and I really enjoyed this one. I think the pesto makes it unique; the flavor goes a long way! Thanks!
