Turkey & Tomato Panini
Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread

  • 8 ounces thinly sliced reduced-sodium deli turkey

  • 8 tomato slices

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

Directions
  1. Have four 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (not nonstick) ready by the stove.

  2. Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, Parmesan, basil, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl. Spread about 2 teaspoons of the mixture on each slice of bread. Divide turkey and tomato slices among 4 slices of bread; top with the remaining bread.

  3. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 panini in the pan. Place the medium skillet on top of the panini, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the panini until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the panini, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with another 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining panini.

This look great and I am sure it tastes great. I will be trying it this weekend. The hardest part for me is finding things that I like to eat and then making it. Any body have a good recepie for a good hamburger?
