  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat chipotle mayonnaise
  • 4 slices (1-1/2 ounces each) multigrain bread
  • 16 very thick apple slices
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced smoked deli turkey breast
  • 1 cup loosely packed baby spinach
  • 2 slices (1 ounce each) reduced-fat cheddar cheese


  • Spread 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise on one side of each bread slice. Top 2 of the bread slices evenly with apple slices, turkey, spinach and cheddar. Top with remaining 2 bread slices mayonnaise side down.
  • Lightly spray sandwiches with olive oil non-stick spray.
  • Spray a large ridged grill pan with olive oil non-stick spray and set over medium-high heat.
  • Place the sandwiches in the pan and top with another heave skillet to weigh them down.
  • Cook until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden and crispy, 2-3 minutes on each side. Or grill each sandwich in a panini press.
  • Cut each sandwich in half before serving.

Recipe Notes

To add more spicy flavor to the sandwiches, use peppery arugula instead of spinach.
