I used to get a Turkey Panini at a local restaurant. It was so good! Then one time when I served Italian Cheese Bread with dinner, my husband pointed out that the bread would make a good sandwich bread. So I borrowed the Panini idea from the local restaurant, combined it with my bread recipe, and the recipe below was born. Now I don’t bother going to that local restaurant for the Panini because mine is way better!
Turkey and Ham Panini
- 9 oz. package deli turkey
- 9 oz. package deli ham
- 16 oz. package bacon (be sure it’s the thinner slices – not the thick cut)
- 8 slices provolone
- lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise
Make Italian Cheese Bread.
Cut off the edges (the part that doesn’t have toppings on it) and toss (or snack on).
Cut remaining bread into eight rectangles.
Gently slice each rectangle horizontally.
Cook bacon (this time I used pre-cooked bacon and it was a lot easier). Assemble sandwiches so that each sandwich has approximately 1/8 of ham, 1/8 of turkey, one slice of cheese, a couple pieces of bacon.
Put sandwiches together.
Wrap each sandwich in foil and place sandwiches on cookie sheet.
Heat in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Serve with lettuce, tomato slices and mayonnaise. Enjoy!
