Grilled Turkey Parmesan Sandwich

Not your ordinary leftover-turkey sandwich, this grilled creation, with cheese and marinara sauce, is filled with irresistible flavor.

  • Servings: 4

  • 8 slices cheese, such as provolone or mozzarella
  • 8 slices sandwich bread
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced turkey breast
  • Unsalted butter, room temperature, for grilling


  1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet or a griddle over medium heat. Working on a clean surface, place a slice of cheese on top of each of 4 bread slices. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce over the cheese; sprinkle evenly with Parmesan. Layer each with turkey and a final slice of cheese. Top each sandwich with another bread slice, and lightly butter outsides.

  2. Working in batches, grill sandwiches until bread is golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, turn sandwiches, and grill until other side is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes more. Slice in half, and serve warm.

Cook's Notes

Use fresh turkey sliced at the deli counter instead of prepackaged cold cuts, which contain more sodium and preservatives.
