This time of year always brings out cabin-fever in my house. I get itchy for “summer food.” And since our local grocery store had avocados at reduced prices (nice of them to comply to my mood, don’t you think?), I thought, “What better way to kick winter in the bum?” (That’s right. Bum.)
2 slices Country White or Sour Dough Bread (or your favorite thick bread)
Turkey Breast, sliced thick*
2 slices Provolone Cheese
1/2 Avocado, mashed
squirt of lime
5 – 8 Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1. Add the squirt of lime to the avocado and stir until thoroughly incorporated.
2. Layer in the following order: 1 slice of bread, 1 slice of cheese, turkey breast, avocado, tomatoes, 1 slice of cheese, and top with the other slice of bread.
3. Smash them onto a Panini Maker until the cheese is melted and gooey. Mmm-MMMM!!
If you don’t have a panini maker, don’t sweat it! Toast your bread for a little added crunch and warmth.
*Left overs are great. We have also used deli slices, and Oscar Meyer Cutting Board turkey breast.
