Turkey Pesto Panini

This isn't a picture of a true panini, because I don't have a panini press so I just smashed it as much as possible but I think this would make a delicous panini--if you do have a press!

We got some loaves of amazing sourdough bread from the produce co-op and that day I made these sandwiches for lunch and we're hooked!  I had some homemade pesto in the fridge which put them over the top, but a jar of pesto would work just fine!

The recipe is for an individual sandwich so adjust as you need to.

Turkey Pesto Panini2 slices sourdough bread
1/2 Tb pesto
3 slices deli turkey
1 slice provolone cheese
tomato slices
drizzle of balsamic vinagrette (Ken's creamy balsamic vinagrette would work great too, but don't use a runny balsamic dressing.)
Olive oil for brushing

Brush the bread with the olive oil.  Spread the pesto on the bottom, then layer the tomatoes, turkey, cheese and drizzle the balsamic vinagrette.  Grill on each side until the bread is brown and the cheese is melted.  If you're feeling particularly daring add a slice of provolone to each side for extra cheesy-ness.
