Josh and I recently discovered the “Stoffer’s Turkey and Cheese” Panini’s at Wal-Mart. They are delish…only problem is, they are $3 a piece for a teeny tiny little sandwich. Call me cheap, but that’s a lot for sandwiches. By the time we bought enough for us to enjoy for supper we would have spent probably $12 (plus the tax). So last night I tried my hand at making my own. They actually turned out really, really good! Here’s the recipe I concocted for those interested in trying it themselves.
*Sliced Turkey [or you could use ham if you prefer]
*Swiss Cheese [Or whatever kind of cheese you like best. We found that swiss tastes the best for a panini.]
*Bread [sourdough tastes the best!]
Lay out your bread, spreading mayo on each piece. Add Cheese to both sides of your bread. On one slice, place turkey, bacon bits and another slice of cheese. On the other slice, place more turkey [Note: I found that 3 slicese of Turkey on each side works the best. It wasn’t too thick or too thin. ] Put your bread on a Grilling Pan and let the bread brown. When they have browned just a little, put your sandwich together. Flip several times until the cheese is melted. It’s easiest to cut the sandwich when it’s on the stove and it helps the cheese to melt faster.
We loved these! And they are really simple. Definately something I will add to our menu planning in the weeks to come 🙂
