I'm learning fruit can really bump up the fun factor when it comes to sandwiches. First, I used cherries in a Christmas Inspired Panini and then moved to pears for a fun turkey sandwich. Today I experimented with a beautiful ripe plum. It added a fun sweet texture to an otherwise boring turkey sandwich.
Grilling it created a nice warm satisfying lunch. It also helped spread the little bit of cheese, making it seem more indulgent than it was. Always a plus in my book. 🙂
Here's what I did…
- 1 whole wheat sandwich thin
- 1 slice of muenster cheese (¾ oz) cut in half
- 2oz of thin sliced roasted turkey breast
- 1 plum sliced
- handful of baby spinach
Gather and weigh out all the ingredients first.
I'm finding this step helps immensely in planning and cleanup.
Stack the sandwich. Start with ½ slice of cheese, top with the turkey and then the plum slices.
Lay the spinach on top and then the second half of cheese. Lay this half in the other direction than the first so you get cheese in every bite.
Grill the sandwich either in a skillet or a panini press. You guys know by now I use my George Foreman.
It took 4 minutes total on the heated grill. I turned it once to cook evenly, as the Foreman squishes it forward.
