How to Make It

Step 1

Trim and discard rind from Brie. Cut Brie into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Layer 4 bread slices evenly with turkey, basil leaves, strawberries, and Brie.

Step 2

Spread 1 1/2 tsp. pepper jelly on 1 side of each of remaining 4 bread slices; place bread slices, jelly sides down, on top of Brie. Brush sandwiches with melted butter.

Step 3

Cook sandwiches, in batches, in a preheated panini press 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish, if desired.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Braswell's Red Pepper Jelly. To prepare sandwiches without a panini press, cook in a preheated grill pan over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden.

My family LOVED these sandwiches! I made a few changes. I left out the basil; didn't have it. Instead of using sliced turkey, I pounded out fresh turkey cutlets so they were thin and then battered them in Italian seasoned Panko crumbs and fried them with a little olive oil. This added about 30 minutes to the prep/cook time, but well worth it. I also didn't have a panini press, so I made them like I would a grilled cheese sandwich. I melted butter in a skillet on the stove and fried the sandwiches a few minutes on each side until the cheese melted. Delicious and satisfying!

My favorite pannini ever. I like making them with hot pepper jam.

This was OUTSTANDING. I couldn't find a regular pepper jelly, but found raspberry pepper jelly and it worked great!

I didn't really enjoy this, it sort of tasted like strawberry jam on a turkey sandwich, not my favorite. The flavors sounded so interesting together, but it just didn't do it for me.

I thought this was great. Even better than I anticipated. That being said, I only gave it 4 stars because to get a 5, the result has to really knock my socks off. But this was definitely worth making.

This was a great combination of flavors. I didn't have enough basil growing yet, so I used one leaf of basil plus spinach for each sandwich.
