Ingredients

  • Basil Mayonnaise:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Dash of white pepper
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Sandwich:
  • 4 slices of French bread
  • Basil mayonnaise
  • Extra sharp white cheddar
  • Turkey sliced
  • Tomato sliced
  • Avocado sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat your panini grill or a grill pan over medium heat.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, basil, minced garlic, sea salt, to taste, dash of white pepper, and dash of cayenne pepper, together in a small bowl. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  • Spread some of the basil mayonnaise on both slices of bread then layer it with a little cheese, turkey, tomato, avocado, and a little more cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top.
  • Place into your panini pan (or grill pan). Cook for 5 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
  • Side Note: I always cook my paninis dry. I find that using oil or butter on the bread makes the sandwich too greasy. Try it – I bet you will like it and it’s way better for you!
