How to Make Turkey Pesto Melt

Step-by-Step

Set aside to cool – may be made up to a day ahead of time.

Spread 1 tablespoon pesto on 4 bread slices, and 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce on the remaining bread slices. Divide turkey, caramelized onions, and cheese between 4 bread slices then top with remaining slices.
  3. Cook in a Panini press preheated to medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp or in a large skillet over medium heat for 3-4 minutes a side. Slice in half then serve.
