Make Lunch More Interesting with Our Favorite Paninis

April 19th, 2010

The day I purchased my first Panini maker, it revolutionized my life. That $50 investment has gone a long, long way for our family. Paninis can turn an ordinary sandwich into something extraordinary … It’s a easy and quick way to make a delicious lunch or snack. Don’t have a Panini maker? You can still make this healthy twist on your typical sandwich:

Turkey and Tomato Panini


  • 3 tsp. Mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. Nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp. Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 tsp. Fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp. Lemon juice
  • Freshly ground paper, to taste
  • 8 slices Klosterman Honey Wheat bread
  • 8 ounces Deli turkey, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices Tomato
  • 2 tsp. Canola oil

Have four, 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (nonstick) ready by the stove. Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, Parmesan, basil, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the mixture on each slice of bread. Divide turkey and tomato slices among 4 slices of bread; top with the remaining bread.

Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 Paninis in the large skillet. Place the medium skillet on top of the Paninis, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the Paninis until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the Paninis, 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 Paninis.

Who said nutritious couldn’t also be delicious? Klosterman breads are both, making delicious sandwiches healthier for you!
