I used left over turkey breast, sliced as thin as I could get it. I grilled the sandwiches on a panini press but otherwise made as directed. Results were tasty and filling.

I made these for our family of three adults and everyone loved them. I made two changes just based on our personal tastes. I used Swiss cheese instead of the Monterey Jack called for and I grilled them in my panini press instead of on the stove top. Its a terrific combination of flavors!

Right amount of meatiness and crunch.
