Turkey Pesto Grilled Cheese

This is not so much a recipe as it is just a concept, but it has become a staple in my life. My favorite is making this on a good Artisan seed bread (I am still looking for the perfect recipe) but my grocery store has a pretty good version.

Turkey Pesto Grilled Cheese

Artisan bread (seed, crusty, french, or whatever your thing is)
pesto (store bought or homemade)
provolone cheese
herb roasted turkey (I LOVE the Castlewood brand from Sam's club)
Fresh tomatoes

Take two slices of GOOD bread, slather each side with pesto.  Add cheese and turkey.  Now put butter on the outside and grill it on a hot griddle until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted. (I like to put a lid over the top of the sandwich, it helps the cheese to melt).  Once it is all melty, remove from the griddle and add that fresh tomato!

  1. Mmm, sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing the details too, I'll have to try that turkey.

  2. Oh, going to Sam's Club tomorrow, definitely going to get that turkey and try it! We love pesto, first time we both tried it was on our honeymoon.

  3. I was brought here by following a link to this recipe from a post about 31 grill cheeses better than a boyfriend. Let me just say that I'm dying here. This looks soooo delicious and here I can't have gluten or dairy.. :/

    I also wanted to add, that my McAfee gave me a red warning about your site, is there anything I should be worried about?

    Thanks again for the superb recipe, my husband will enjoy it!

  4. I'm with Mistie about the link. This definitely looks inspiring. Most of the things you take for granted in El Norte can't be had here in Ecuador. We have to make it all from scratch. Luckily, I like it like that.

  5. Hi Kadie, I knew your family when we all lived in Ophir. She posted a link on Facebook and I will definitely be back. Keep up the good work. My hips love you already.
