Smoked Turkey, Roasted Pepper, and Swiss Cheese Panini with Pesto MayoCuisinart Original Recipe
This hearty sandwich is full of gourmet flavor."
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon pesto
4 slices artisan wheat bread
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey
1 roasted red pepper, drained and sliced into ½-inch strips
2 thin slices red onion (about ¼ small red onion)
2 ounces Swiss cheese, sliced (about 4 slices)
1 . Preheat grill in the closed position.
2 . Combine the mayonnaise and pesto in a small bowl; reserve. Brush one side of each slice of bread with the oil. Lay 2 slices of bread on a work surface, oiled side down and spread with the pesto mayonnaise. Build the sandwiches in this order: turkey, pepper, onion and cheese, evenly dividing the ingredients between the sandwiches. Top with remaining bread, oiled side up.
3 . Place sandwiches on the bottom grill plate and close, applying light pressure to the handle for 30 seconds. Grill panini for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is nicely toasted.
4 . Let rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Cut in half on the diagonal and serve warm.
