heirloom turkey melts

I made this sandwich a couple weeks back and it was a hit! This picture doesn't do it justice. It's super quick and is a yummy meal to serve when having people over for lunch. It's just a little spin on the traditional "turkey melt". I served the sandwiches next to a bowl of warm tomato soup, the Trader Joe's tomato and roasted pepper  goes great with it!

The fresh basil, heirloom tomato, and fresh sprouted bread all came from my local farmers market, a great place to get fresh and affordable organic produce! 

Heirloom Turkey Melts 

2 slices sprouted bread with butter (on the pan sides)
2-3 slices TJ's Columbus peppered turkey
2-3 slices heirloom tomato
3-4 fresh basil leaves
3 slices of havarti dill cheese ( a staple in our fridge!)
3 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
sea salt and pepper

Lightly coat the 2 sides of bread with butter, then layer cheese, basil, turkey and tomato ( season the tomato with S&P).  Place sandwich in a skillet or frying pan and cook until cheese is melted and bread is toasted to a golden brown.
