About this Recipe

This is easily one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever. The combination of the turkey, cheddar and pesto adds a fun twist to the classic grilled cheese and is guaranteed to satisfy any grilled cheese lover! This sandwich is best made with large slices of high-quality sourdough bread, but you’ll only be able to fit 2 sandwiches on the tray. We recommend using square sliced sourdough sandwich bread if you want to make 3 or 4 sandwiches.


  • 2 large slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 2 slices turkey
