Turkey, Red Pepper, and Spinach Panini

Turkey Panini

How to ensure something is delicious:

Cover it in chocolate. Think Chocolate Oat Bars, Scotcheroos, and Pineapple.

Roast it. You know you want some Roasted Vegetable Lasagna, Oven Roasted Broccoli, and Cajun Roasted Chickpeas.

Melt cheese on it. While BBQ Pork Sandwiches, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, and Pesto Chicken Sandwiches might be the usual around here there’s a new kid in town.

Turkey Panini

This turkey panini is melty and flavorful. I love it with a grainy mustard, my husband loves it with mayonnaise. You could also use your other favorite flavor mustard, pesto, or whatever your mind can imagine. If you can’t find a good quality Italian bread you can use any old sandwich bread you have lying around. However I believe its the bread that really makes or breaks a sandwich and crusty Italian is the way to go here. If you want to skip the step of cutting and cooking the red pepper you could definitely buy a jar of roasted red peppers or substitute another favorite vegetable. What I’m really saying is, there are a million sandwich options for you and I don’t understand why you’re not eating one right now.

How do you make sure something is delicious?
