You can use any type of meat or cheese for these, or even use a tortilla instead of bread.
turkey deli meat (I use Oscar Meyer Deli Roasted)
Country Crock or other soft margarine
thick cheese such as provolone, swiss, jack or cheddar
bread (wheat, white or sourdough)
First, fry the turkey slices in a pan with some Pam, medium to medium-high heat. The amount you use per sandwich is up to you. You just want to heat up the turkey so that you don't have cold turkey meat in your hot sandwich. Lightly heat or brown both sides and remove from pan.
Butter one side of each of the bread slices. Spray the pan liberally with Pam, then put the bread in the pan, buttered side down. Put a slice of the thick cheese on the bread, then the turkey, then the American cheese, then finally the other slice of bread (buttered side up).
Keeping the pan on medium-high, grill for a few minutes (this part takes some practice because you don't want to burn it, but you want it browned).
Turn the sandwich over and grill the other side, being careful not to let the insides fall out. Spray the pan with more Pam before you put the sandwich back on it. A panini griller or something like George Foreman Grill would work great for this.
Grill until the other side is browned. Remove to plate and slice in half diagonally. So easy and very yummy.
This is also good with gluten free bread or tortillas. Don't use provolone, it is not gluten free.
This is not low carb. However, I always enjoy melted turkey and cheese in the microwave, with no bread!!
