Caribbean Turkey Melt Panini

Kim Biegacki


This Panini is a fusion of flavors with turkey, bacon, roasted red's with some amazing gouda cheese that melts perfectly spread with guava jam and you have one Caribbean party of a sandwich. I was thinking of my friend Ana when I made this and hoping she might like it too.

(I sliced my Panini and stacked the halves on top of each other so you could see the delicious inside.)

Directions Step-By-Step

Italian bread buttered on outside & on the inside of both slices is a generous spread of guava jam. I layered one romaine leaf, sliced turkey breast, 4 slices of cooked black peppered bacon, 4 medium sliced pieces of Gouda, 4 thin slices of sweet roasted red pepper, added 2 tbsp. of mayonnaise mixed with 1 tsp. of Frank's hot sauce and drizzled on top of roasted reds. Repeat with sliced turkey breast, romaine and the other slice of bread with guava jam on one side and buttered on the other.
I grilled my Panini on my griddle...which turns any bread into a perfect Panini Sandwich.
