California Turkey Panini

On the same day that I decided to make this sandwich for dinner, I discovered Panini Happy, a blog devoted to, guess what - paninis! Since April is National Grilled Cheese Month, Kathy is hosting the Grilled Cheese Pageant - a celebration of our favorite sandwich. This is one of our favorite versions - and I call it the California Turkey Panini since it has avocado and green chilies in it.

California Turkey Panini

8 slices sourdough bread
butter or margarine
16 slices deli turkey, smoked or roasted
16 slices Swiss cheese
1 4-oz can diced green chilies, drained, divided in fourths
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced

Butter lightly the 8 slices of bread. Layer on griddle or in skillet in this order:
1. bread
2. Swiss cheese
3. turkey
4. green chilies
5. avocado slices
6. Swiss Cheese
7. bread

Grill/press until bread is lightly browned. Makes 4.
