Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
  • 8 slices ciabatta bread or other rustic Italian white bread, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces very thinly sliced roast turkey breast
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, stemmed, skin and seeds removed, cut into thin strips
  • 6 ounces fontina cheese, thinly sliced, to cover the bread slices
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Directions

Arrange the slices of bread on a flat work surface and, using a small spoon, divide the pesto evenly among 1 side of each of the bread slices.

Divide the turkey, roasted pepper strips, and fontina equally among 4 of the bread slices. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread, pesto sides down, to form 4 sandwiches.

Brush the outsides of each sandwich lightly with some of the olive oil.

Heat a large skillet, griddle, or grill pan over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the sandwiches and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, pressing occasionally with a large metal spatula or the bottom of a small heavy saucepan, about 4 minutes per side. Remove sandwiches and transfer to a cutting board. Slice in half on the diagonal and serve immediately.
