Turkey and kale panini

May 22, 2013

I do my best to get some greens in with every meal and this sandwich is my new favorite way to sneak them in. The sauteed shallots, garlic, kale, I mean come on what better additions to a turkey sandwich. Plus I got some really good smoked gouda and bam (not to quote Emeril) we’ve got a turkey and kale panini. For those of you that don’t like kale, I would highly recommend sauteing and adding to whatever you may be making, pasta, rice, sandwiches, it really takes on the flavor of whatever it’s with and you can hardly taste it. 

Mike actually really enjoys kale, so we don’t usually have any troubles there.


1 lb sliced turkey breastImage

10 slices of smoked gouda (or whatever cheese you prefer)

1 bunch of kale

2 shallots

5 garlic gloves

Italian loaf (just make sure it’s good bread)

Pinch of red pepper flakes (don’t tell Mike :))


Chop kale, shallot and garlic and saute in 1 tsp of olive oil for 3-4 minutes. Add in red pepper flakes and S&P and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until kale is wilted. 

Butter the outside of two slices of bread and layer kale mixture, cheese, turkey and the other slice of bread. Place sandwich in frying pan and cook until brown on both sides or until the cheese melts. 

Serve with your favorite side. I went for roasted green beans and some salt and pepper kettle potato chips. BEST potato chips ever. Seriously, go buy some now. For the green beans, mix beans with olive oil and your favorite seasoning and roast at 400 for about 20-25 minutes.
