This turkey pesto sandwich features fresh mozzarella cheese, which melts beautifully, creating a gooey, cheesy bite. Serve for lunch or dinner alongside a bowl of soup for a filling meal.
- ¼ cup refrigerated pesto
- 8 slices multigrain bread
- 12 ounces sliced roasted skinless turkey breast or lower-sodium deli turkey
- 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- Step 1
Spread 1/2 tablespoon pesto on 1 side of each slice of bread. Top 4 of the slices evenly with turkey and cheese. Top with remaining bread slices, pesto-side down. Brush the outer sides of the sandwiches evenly with oil.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches; cook until golden brown and the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining 2 sandwiches.
