Grilled Pesto Turkey Panini Recipe

 

This sandwich sounds so good! I love pesto and sandwiches are a meal we have often when running to soccer practice. Thanks to Connie for this recipe. Check out Cook with Connie for more fantastic recipes!

On a recent trip to Nags Head, I had one of the most delicious bagel sandwiches of my life. Now, I have to say, the breakfast bagels in New York City were superb (of course), but this bagel sandwich I had at the beach was unique and easy to duplicate at home. It was the perfect meld of Mediterranean flavors and American convenience. A delicious, filling, hand-held meal. YUM.

The original was smoked turkey, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, pesto, lettuce and tomato on a rosemary bagel. My version starts with deli-sliced roasted turkey. I substituted whole-grain focaccia for the bagel (less calories and more fiber) and I used sprouts, rather than lettuce. I also used home-made pesto and a juicy slice of yellow tomato.

The different twist on this sandwich was that I grilled it using my counter-top electric grill. One popular brand is the “George Foreman Grill”. By using my indoor grill, my yummy sandwich turned into a Panini. Using this technique, you can turn any of your favorite sandwiches into paninis. Soup and sandwich night is a quick and easy supper, while also a nutritious and satisfying meal.
