I have to first apologize.

My food photography is AWFUL. I have a goal to see significant improvement in it, and my family photography. Basically, my kids were screaming for food, and I just threw it on the plate and took a picture. Shame. I know. I will do better.

Okay! Now that THAT is out of the way, Just, trust me that this recipe rocks. It’s basically a glorified grilled cheese, but man, it is good! Sometimes, I make really yummy grilled sandwiches for my husband and I, and then my kids just have cheese. It works out wonderfully. Sometimes I do make them try them out, but sometimes, I just keep it all to myself 🙂

I also wanted to mention that Panini’s are usually cooked on a Panini Grill Press. I used to have one of those, and it was great, but I now just use a skillet, or frying pan. Just so you don’t feel like you have to run out and get one! 🙂

Okay so this is basically what I did…

IMG_0508You spread a generous amount of butter and olive oil mixture on the outside of your bread. Place butter side down on grill, and do the same with your second piece of bread. Then also brush on some Italian Dressing to both pieces of bread. On one side, place your turkey meat and sliced red onion {I like to slice mine with a potato peeler!} and the other slice top with cheese and spinach. Once they are both grilled fully, you combine and let cook a bit longer. Then remove from heat! Pretty simple right?

Here is the recipe! 🙂

Oh, and we love to eat these with Grapes! 🙂 Let me know if you have questions! I didn’t list exact amounts depending on how much meat or cheese you prefer, or how big your family is, put as much as you know YOU will like, but don’t skip any ingredients! 🙂

Happy Cooking! 🙂
