Strawberry Panini Sandwiches

Makes 8 servings



16 slices of wheat bread


Basil paste*

10 medium strawberries (sliced thin)

8 slices of Havarti cheese

2-2 1/2 lb. deli turkey (shaved or sliced thin)

Pepper Jelly



*May be found in the produce section.



Take one slice of bread and spread mayonnaise and basil paste on one side.  Place thin slices of strawberries on top of mayonnaise mixture.  Place a slice of cheese over the strawberries.  Layer shaved turkey on top.  Take the other slice of bread and spread pepper jelly on one side.  Place on top of the turkey to create a sandwich.  Butter both sides of the exterior bread and place on a hot Panini press and close the lid (you may also use a frying pan, but the sandwich will need to be flipped over to cook both sides).  Sandwich is ready when cheese is melted and bread is toasted a golden brown.  Serve immediately.
