Turkey Panini Rustico | Mini Van Dreams

Recently, I tried the turkey panini at a local coffeehouse chain.  Loved it and wanted to try to recreate it at home.  With some trial and error, I created my Turkey Panini Rustico.  This delicious panini can easily be made in a skillet or in a panini maker.  The best part – you probably have most, if not all, these ingredients on hand!  Feel free to customize the toppings – I am not a big spinach-on-sandwiches fan, so I left mine off.  But, pile it in on yours if you like! Don’t like onions or tomatoes?  Leave them off!   This quick and delicious panini will definitely become a family favorite!
