Warm Turkey Pesto Baguette Sandwich

Servings: 5

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Grill ‘em or bake ‘em, this colorful tasty sandwich will satisfy everyone.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. HARVESTLAND® Oven Roasted Turkey Breast — thinly sliced
  • 2 12-inch-long Baguettes (about 3 inches in diameter)
  • 1/2 c. prepared pesto
  • 2/3 c. Jarred Roasted red peppers — patted dry and cut into strips
  • 4 oz. provolone cheese — sliced
  • 2 c. Baby spinach

Instructions

Preparation:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat, or heat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Slice baguettes in half lengthwise, leaving just barely attached along one long edge. Spread pesto on cut sides of bread.
  3. Layer turkey breast, red peppers, cheese and spinach leaves on bottom halves of baguette. Close baguettes and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. (Can be refrigerated up to 1 day until ready to bake.)
  4. Place wrapped sandwiches on grill and close lid, or place directly on oven rack. Bake 10-15 minutes, turning once, until bread feels crunchy when lightly squeezed through foil. Unwrap and slice into 3-4-inch pieces. Serve warm or room temperature.
