Ingredients
  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup cooked turkey breast, skin removed, sliced or diced
  • ¼ cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • A few canned jalapeño peppers, drained
  • Olive oil spray, or 1 teaspoon olive oil
Instructions
  1. Heat George Foreman grill, a grill pan or a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, assemble the sandwich: spread one slice with mustard, top with turkey, cheese and jalapenos, and finally with the second slice.
  3. Spray or brush the grill surfaces with olive oil.
  4. Place the sandwich on the grill, close the lid and press tightly to flatten. Grill about 5 minutes (3-5 minutes on each side with a heavy pot on top to flatten if using a grill pan), until bread is golden brown and crispy and cheese is melted.
  5. Cool 2-3 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
