Caprese Panini with Turkey

Caprese Panini with Turkey
Recipe from Our Best Bites
Makes 1 serving/sandwich

2 oz. (57 grams) Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Tuscan Pane
2 oz. (56 grams) Hormel Natural Choice Deli Turkey
1 oz. (28 grams) Trader Joe’s Fresh Mozzarella (2 slices)
30 grams tomato (1/2 small roma tomato; 3 slices)
5 basil leaves
¾ tsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

Pour olive oil in a small bowl. Use brush to spread on one side of each slice. Top one side with turkey, slices of tomato, basil, and slices of cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put top on. Brush olive oil on outside of sandwich (now all 4 sides have olive oil!). Put in panini maker (or George Foreman grill like me) for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Drop in microwave for 40 seconds (to help it gel together; melt cheese). Cut in half and serve.

Review: Yay!! It was super filling, too. Next time if I’m more hungry I’ll have it with a cup of Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque (120 calories; 3.5 fat grams; 21 carbs and 2 protein grams).
