  • 1/4 cup finely grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. softened butter
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 6-8 slices of bread I used an Italian round loaf
  • thin slices Colby jack cheese
  • 6 ounces of Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey lunchmeat I used the oven roasted flavor
  • fresh cilantro
  • 1 to mato thinly sliced
  • 4 Tbsp. light mayonnaise
  • 3/4 - 1 tsp. diced chipotle peppers


  • Combine parmesan cheese, butter and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine mayonnaise and chipotle peppers in another small bowl. Set aside.
  • On 3 slices of bread, spread reserved chipotle mayo. Layer a slice of cheese, a few slices of turkey, a couple slices of tomato, a sprinkling of chopped cilantro, another slice of cheese, and top with another piece of bread. Repeat on other sandwiches.
  • Spread the butter mixture on outsides of sandwiches and cook on griddle over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown.
  • Pull off heat and slice in half. Serve alone or with your favorite soup. Enjoy!
