Turkey and Pepper Panini

I love my Panini machine and we try to use it as often as possible. The other night we made these

So good. The younger kids don’t care for pesto, or red peppers so they got a more bland version.

TURKEY + PEPPER PANINI
serves 3-4

1 8×12 inch slab herbed foccacia, edges trimmed
5-6 tablespoons fresh pesto
8 slices roasted turkey breast
1 8oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained
4 oz. pepperjack cheese (about 3-4 slices)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt & fresh ground pepper
Heat panini press to HIGH. Trim off the ends of foccacia and cut in half to create a sandwich. Spread half of pesto on each side. Top one side with 4 slices of turkey followed by a layer of thinly sliced red peppers, pepperjack cheese and a final layer of 4 slices of turkey. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Top the sandwich with the other piece of bread and brush both sides of sandwich with olive oil. Place sandwich in panini press and grill for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts & starts sizzling. Cut into 4-6 pieces and serve.
