How to Make Turkey Pesto Melt
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sprinkle with sugar and cook for 25-30 minutes or until dark brown and caramelized, stirring occasionally and turning heat down to medium-low when onions begin to brown. Set aside to cool – may be made up to a day ahead of time.
- Spread 1/2 tablespoon butter on one side of each slice of bread, then place buttered-side-down on cutting board. 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.
- 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.
