Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 slices whole-grain bread
  • 200g thinly sliced Fontina cheese
  • 225g sliced turkey
  • ½ cup (125ml) cranberry compote or cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup (240g) arugula leaves
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  • For each sandwich, lay a slice of cheese on a slice of bread and then top with the turkey, cranberry, arugula and another slice of cheese. Top with the other bread slice and repeat to make 4 sandwiches.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, brush one side of the sandwich with olive oil and place the oil side of the sandwich down in the pan.
  • Place a smaller heavy pan on the sandwich to press it down and cook for 5 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt and the bread becomes golden brown.
  • Brush the untoasted side with olive oil, carefully flip the sandwich and weigh it down again. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Slice each sandwich diagonally and serve warm.
