Grilled Turkey Sandwich with Cheddar Cheese & Red Peppers

 Here's one of my favorite sandwich recipes for Turkey or Chicken ~ Enjoy!

Grilled Turkey Sandwich with Cheddar Cheese and Red Peppers  

        2 thick slices of  turkey – Enough to cover a slice of bread
              I like to use left over chicken or turkey breast meat for this sandwich
        Mayonnaise or Pesto
-     My favorite is Mayo with Olive oil
        Sour dough bread, whole wheat bread or your favorite bread
        2 Roasted red peppers, Fresh roasted on the grill is great, but I like to keep a jar on hand specially in the winter months
               Slice each open and remove the seeds so the pepper will lay flat on the sandwich
        Cheddar Cheese,  thinly sliced ( less is better with this sandwich)
         If you are using a large cube of fresh cheese slice several pieces to fit the bread. I find that cheddar cheese really compliments the turkey and roasted red peppers
        Butter about a 1/2 teaspoon
        Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread, layer  ½ the cheese, turkey, red peppers and the other remaining slices of cheese on the bread and place the second slice on top to create a sandwich
         I found that by placing the cheese on both slices of bread with the Turkey and peppers in between results in a better sandwich
        Melt butter in the griddle over medium heat~ Watch closely so the butter doesn’t burn
        Place the sandwich on the griddle and cook for approximately 3 to 4 minutes on one side until lightly brown
       Using a spatula,  lift the sandwich and carefully flip to cook the other side
        The second side usually cooks faster so be careful and watch closely
       Everyone has a preference on what properly “grilled” is. The bread should be brown per your    taste 
 Slice and enjoy a delicious sandwich. Great with soup, salad, fresh fruit, sliced carrots, celery or slices of cucumber. What's your favorite grilled cheese sandwich? 

Just Cook Something. Cheers! Kary~
