Smoked Turkey Club Panini

Smoked Turkey Club Panini

adapted from Cook’s Country June/July 2010

Serves 4


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried packed in oil, rinsed, patted dry, and minced plus 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato oil
  • 8 slices thick-cut crusty bread (I used sourdough)
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli smoked turkey
  • 2 cups baby arugula

Arrange bacon in a single layer on paper towel lined plate.  Cover with paper towels and microwave until crisp, about 5 minutes.

Brush sun dried tomato oil over 1 side of bread.  Place bread, oil side down , on cutting board.  Layer sun-dried tomatoes and half of cheese on 4 slices of bread, then top with turkey, bacon, arugula, and remaining cheese.  Top with remaining bread, oil side up.

Heat grill pan or large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute.  Place 2 sandwiches in pan and weight with Dutch oven.  Cook sandwiches until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes per side.  Repeat with remaining sandwiches.  Serve.
