Turkey Parmesan Panini
Level: Easy
Total: 45 min
Active: 35 min
Yield: 4 sandwiches



2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup store-bought pesto
8 slices pullman white bread
1/4 cup marinara sauce
8 slices sliced mozzarella or provolone
8 thin slices smoked turkey
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Place the tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with the salt. Toss well to coat. Roast the tomatoes until beginning to pop and blister, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, spread 1 tablespoon pesto on 4 slices of bread. Spread 1 tablespoon marinara on the other 4 slices. Place a slice of mozzarella on each slice of bread. Divide the turkey evenly on 4 slices of bread and top with some of the blistered tomatoes. Sprinkle each sandwich with 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Top with the remaining slices of bread and press gently.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add half of the remaining oil to the skillet and add 2 sandwiches. Place a lid slightly smaller than the skillet on top of the sandwiches and press down. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and repeat on the second side. Continue with the remaining sandwiches. (Alternatively, you can use a panini press.) Serve warm.
