Oven Roasted Turkey Sandwich


8 slices of pan-de-mie bread

6 ounces of oven roasted turkey (or your favorite prepackaged sliced roasted turkey)

2 ounces of Italian oil-packed sundried tomatoes

2 avocados

8 thin slices of Danish Havarti cheese

Pesto mayonnaise (ingredients below)

Ingredients for Pesto Mayonnaise

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 cup fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


1. To make the pesto mayo, combine the basil, garlic, salt and pepper, and purée in a food processor. Very gradually add the olive oil. Once the oil is incorporated into the mixture, add the Parmesan. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the mayonnaise. Cover lightly and refrigerate until ready to serve.

2. For each sandwich, take two slices of bread, and generously coat each side with the pesto mayo.

3. Evenly layer the turkey, sundried tomatoes and cheese. If possible, place each sandwich in a panini press the until the bread reaches a golden brown color (approximately 5 minutes), then add the thinly sliced avocado.
