1 8 oz. Brie round
8 Italian bread slices
8 oz. thinly sliced turkey
8 fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
2 Tbsp. red pepper jelly
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1. Trim and discard rind from Brie. Cut brie into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Layer 4 bread slices with turkey, brie, basil and strawberries.
2. Spread 1/2 tsp. of red pepper jelly on remaining 4 slices of bread. Place halves together. Brush outside of sandwiches with butter.
3. Cook sandwiches, in batches, in preheated panini press 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. If you don't have a panini press, cook sandwiches in a preheated grill pan for 2-3 minutes.
This is one of my all-time favorite things to cook in the summer. The basil in my backyard planer is growing out of control and the strawberries in the grocery store are beautiful, so I guess I will have to make lots of these yummy sandwiches!
