Turkey & Avocado Panini on Onion Bread

Did you know that April is Grilled Cheese Month?  Yeah, me neither.  I’m not sure who decided this, or why they chose April (personally, I would have chosen something springy for April, like lemons or something).  But I digress.

From what I can tell, as long as it’s grilled and there’s cheese involved, you have yourself a grilled cheese sandwich.  So I decided to make a Panini…ahem, I mean…grilled cheese, out of some of my favorite sandwich ingredients (with an extra slice of celebratory cheese, of course).

Turkey & Avocado Panini on Onion Bread
An Amy Original

2 slices onion bread (or another whole wheat bread)
2 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices turkey pepperoni
6 slices smoked turkey breast
¼ of an avocado, sliced
1 handful spinach

Preheat a Foreman Grill or Panini maker to high heat.

Generously butter one side of each slice of bread.  On the unbuttered side of one slice, place one slice of Swiss cheese, followed by the pepperoni slices, turkey, spinach, avocado, and the remaining slice of Swiss.  Top with the second slice of bread, buttered side up.

Place the sandwich on the grill and bring the lid down to press.  Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the bread is browned.
