I love a good ol’ fashioned sandwich, and today I had a craving for sun dried tomatoes and turkey so I decided to make this favorite of mine from Clean Eating Magazine. This recipe make for a delicious, clean quick-fix meal. If you are like me and don’t have a Panini maker or a countertop grill, put Panini in a hot skillet and use another heavy skillet to press them down as they toast. If you don’t want to have the Panini bread or don’t have any in the house, Ezekiel bread or wraps work great here too! I like having carrot sticks and hummus or an apple with this sandwich to make a whole meal! Makes a very filling, warm, and delicious lunch or dinner. My favorite part is that this takes less than 30 minutes to make so when I’m hungry it doesn’t take long!
