Make crusty turkey-and-cheese panini with an Italian edge thanks to artichoke hearts and a schmear of pesto mayo. Try it as a surprising new use for those turkey leftovers!
Updated Sep 30, 2009

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto
  • 16 slices crusty Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 8 slices cooked turkey (3/4 lb)
  • 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
  • 3 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 slices (1 oz each) Fontina or provolone cheese

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, mix mayonnaise and pesto.
  • 2
    Spread 1 side of each bread slice with butter. Turn bread slices butter sides down; spread other sides with 1 tablespoon pesto mixture each. Top 8 bread slices with turkey, artichokes, tomatoes and cheese. Top with remaining bread slices, butter sides up.
  • 3
    In sandwich grill or 12-inch skillet, cook sandwiches over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    No need to use artichoke hearts if someone doesn’t like them. The sandwiches have plenty of filling without them.
  • tip 2
    Fontina cheese has a mild, nutty flavor and melts easily, making it perfect for warm sandwiches.
