Don’t have a panini press? You can also make these sandwiches on your stovetop! Place sandwiches in a skillet over medium heat. Then, set a cast-iron or another heavy skillet on top of the sandwiches to “press” the sandwiches down. Once the bottoms are toasted, flip the sandwiches, reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the second side is golden.
Try rye, another whole-grain option! It supplies your body with plenty of fiber for a healthy digestive system!
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 red pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1 green or yellow pepper, seeded and cut into strips
8 slices rye bread
8 ounces turkey breast, cooked and shredded
4 slices low-fat Swiss cheese
Preheat panini press.
In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add peppers and sauté until tender. Remove from heat and set aside on paper towels.
To make sandwiches, brush one side of each slice of bread with olive oil. Place 4 slices of bread on the panini press, olive-oil-side down. Add 2 ounces turkey, 1/4 of peppers and 1 slice Swiss cheese on top. Place another slice of bread on top of each sandwich, olive-oil-side up.
Close the panini press. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the sandwich is toasted with grill marks.
