Turkey Club Panini Sandwich

This is my type of club sandwich! In fact, this is my favorite sandwich right now. Melted cheesy, meaty goodness…

A boule loaf (rustic and round) works nicely. I used a multi-grain boule loaf from my local grocery store bakery, but a sourdough or other artisan loaf would be awesome too. And really, it would probably be good with any hearty bread, you know, one that won’t fall apart easily.

Nearly all of the other ingredients have coupons available too! Search for coupons here or click on the ingredient in the recipe.

Chop up some sun-dried tomatoes and mix with mayo. Then cook up some bacon and your prep is basically done!

I don’t have a panini press, but I do have a large George Foreman (I got a deal on the Next Grilleration one a long time ago). So I grilled my sandwiches on the George, applying pressure to squish them down, and it worked great. You could also use a grill pan or skillet and weigh the sandwiches down with heavy pot or foil-covered brick or something of the like.
