Oprah's LOVE Sandwich


**found in April 2012 Oprah Magazine

Oprah says she uses whole basil leaves instead of lettuce because lettuce would wilt in the heat of a panini press.

2 tbsp. chopped scallions
1/2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. mayonnaise
2 slices of Udi's or Katz GF Whole Grain Bread-or any gluten-free bread of your desire
2 large basil leaves
4 oz. thinly sliced smoked-turkey breast (Boar's Head is gluten-free, just make sure the deli slicer is cleaned before your turkey is sliced on it) (cross-contamination no-no)
1 slice pepper Jack cheese
3 thin avocado slices
3 thin tomato slices

Saute scallions in olive oil over medium-high heat.  Spread 1 tsp. mayonnaise on each slice of bread and top with a basil leaf.  Layer the cheese, turkey, scallions, avocado, and tomato on one slice of bread and cover with the other, mayonnaise side in.  Place on a panini press set to medium-high heat and heat until cheese melts, 3 or 4 minutes.

Makes 1 sandwich.
Active time: 15 minutes/Total time: 20minutes

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
