- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 6 basil leaves, chopped finely
- Zest and juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 8 slices multi-grain bread
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Leftover turkey, as desired
- 8 thin slices Gruyère cheese
In a small mixing bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, basil, zest, and juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Brush 1 side of each slice of bread with olive oil. Spread the basil mayonnaise on the opposite side of each slice. Top 4 of the slices of bread (olive oil side down) with turkey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Add 2 slices of cheese over the turkey and top with the remaining 4 pieces of bread (olive oil side up). Heat a sandwich press and cook the sandwiches until golden and the cheese has melted.
