Italian Panini with Pesto

IMG_0988I’m on a roll lately with my sandwich-making!  It’s the best when there are random sandwich fixings lying around the house.  It gets veeeery hard for me to simply heat up leftovers when I have bread, meat, and other tasty items that I could easily turn into a sammich!

This one is a flavor bomb.  Italian white bread slathered in pesto mayo, with turkey, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, and red onion.  It’s sort of like a caprese sandwich, but with a couple of twists that make it extra flavorful.


  • White Italian bread
  • Pesto mayonnaise (in a pinch, some chopped fresh basil, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese mixed into mayonnaise will give the right flavor for this!)
  • Sliced turkey
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Sun-dried tomatoes (or sliced regular tomato!)
  • Sliced red onion

    • Totally get that press out and use it! The results are so yummy! 😀

      The clean-up is so easy, too…if it’s anything like my nonstick press, all you need is to wipe all the grooves clean with a paper towel afterward (with maybe a little elbow grease put into it for sticky spots). That’s it! 🙂
