Smoked Turkey & Avocado Paninis

  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 avocado -- peeled and pit removed
  • 1 T. nonfat sour cream
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tomato -- sliced
  • 8 oz. deli-sliced smoked turkey
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
  • Cooking spray

Place the bacon on a broiler pan. Put the pan on the oven rack closest to the broiler with the oven off. Turn the broiler on HIGH and set a timer to 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, mash the avocado in a small bowl and add the sour cream and lime juice to the bowl. Stir to combine.

Remove the bacon from the oven and arrange tomato slices, smoked turkey and bacon on two slices of bread. Spread the avocado paste generously on the two remaining slices of bread and place them on the other slices to form sandwiches.

Spray both sides of each sandwich lightly with cooking spray. Using a sandwich press, contact grill or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, either press the sandwich in the press or grill for 5 minutes or cook each side of the sandwich for 3 minutes in the skillet.
