Turkey Pepperjack Melts
Makes 2 sandwiches
Originally featured on Big Girls, Small Kitchen
When I moved off campus, lunch was the hardest meal to consistently cook at home. The key is to keep a few essential ingredients around so that a quick lunch fix is always an option. This recipe requires turkey, sandwich bread, and cheese, but is far more satisfying and delicious that its minimal parts give credit to. These are also ingredients that you can easily find in the dining hall and crisp in a George Foreman instead of on the stove.
2 tbsp butter
4 slices whole wheat bread
2 tbsp honey mustard (or this hot sweet mustard)
8 slices pepperjack cheese
8 slices smoked turkey breast
In a small bowl, heat the butter in the microwave until melted.
Lay the slices of bread on a work surface and brush on one side with the melted butter. Flip the bread over and slather the other side with mustard. Lay two slices of cheese on each slice of bread, followed by two slices of turkey. Sandwich each pair together.
Heat a small non-stick skillet over a medium-high flame. When hot, but not smoking, add one sandwich to the pan and cook until it is brown on both sides and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining sandwich.
NOTE: if you don’t have access to a kitchen, you can grill this sandwich on a George Foreman instead.
Cut down the middle and serve immediately.
