Gluten Free Turkey Panini

Being gluten-free doesn’t mean you still can’t indulge in some good old fashioned soup and sandwich meals.  Soup and sandwiches are two of my favorite things to eat for dinner in the fall and winter time (particularly grilled cheese and tomato soup).  I’ve tested around some different gluten-free brands of bread and decided that for this particular recipe, I like Schar the best. Using my George Foreman grill, it was simple to assemble and easy to clean.  From start to finish it took 15 minutes to make and clean up.  Now that’s my kind of meal!

Turkey Avocado Panini
Served with Pacific Brand Winter Squash Soup

2 slices Schar Gluten-Free Bread
2 TBSP Dijonnaise
2 slices thinly sliced provolone cheese
3 thin slices Avocado
6 thin slices deli turkey

Plug in your George Foreman grill OR heat up a cast iron skillet OR whatever skillet you have.

Smear 1 TBSP of Dijonnaise on each slice of bread, face up.

Place 1 slice of provolone cheese on 1 slice of bread (dijonnaise side up).

Top with 6 slices of turkey and avocado pieces.

Gently place the remaining slice of cheese on top and place remaining slice of bread dijonnaise side down on top of your sandwich.

Place in your grill, gently push down to flatten your sandwich.  Let cook for 5-7 minutes or until your bread is toasted.

Serve with your favorite soup.  Pacific Brand Winter Squash soup is pictured.

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
