Turkey and Olive Tapenade Panini

I made this up recently using ingredients I already had around the kitchen. We loved it so much I made it for three days in a row! I had no plans of posting it because technically it is just a turkey sandwich, but the olive tapenade took it to such a new level that I felt I had to share this easy recipe :)

There is no need for mayonaise or any other 'sauce' in this sandwich because the tapenade keeps it moist and adds INCREDIBLE flavor. Look for a tapenade with green olives and sun-dried tomatoes, it'll taste the best!

This makes 1 sandwich, alter as needed!

-2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread
-3 slices lean deli turkey breast
-1 tablespoon olive tapenade
-1 slice cheese (I used a dill white cheddar)
-freshly cracked black pepper

-Spread olive tapenade on 1 slice of bread
-Layer with turkey slices, black pepper and cheese. Top with second piece of bread
-Toast in a panini or sandwich maker (I use my George Foreman grill)
- Slice in half and serve!


  1. where does the black pepper come in?

  2. Thanks for catching that :)

    The black pepper goes on the turkey for a little added flavor
