Turkey & Tomato Panini Recipe at Cooking.com
DIRECTIONS
Have four 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (not nonstick) ready by the stove.


Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, Parmesan, basil, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl. Spread about 2 teaspoons of the mixture on each slice of bread. Divide turkey and tomato slices among 4 slices of bread; top with the remaining bread.


Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 panini in the pan. Place the medium skillet on top of the panini, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the panini until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the panini, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with another 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining panini.

Close, but not quite.
Made these yesterday for 2 collegues and myself. They were good, but seemed to be lacking something. I used fresh basil and straight-from-the-garden tomatos, but didn't have enough flavor. We added a slice of swiss cheese which was a major improvement. The parmesan cheese alone didn't have enough "cheese" taste. Will make again using the swiss and perhaps some roasted red peppers.
