mmmmm, mondays: turkey pesto subs


my kids love giant sandwiches. i don't know what it is about them but my third born literally cheers. i'll take that any day. i also love that a toasted sub takes about 10 minutes to put together and only about 5-10 minutes to bake. it's dinner or lunch in a snap and it is delicious. this was our superbowl treat but it is good for any night of the week.


turkey pesto subs

1 large loaf of french bread, cut length-wise

1/2 cup pesto sauce (you can make your own or buy it from the store)

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sliced red onions

3/4 pound sliced turkey (from a deli is best)

10-12 slices of provolone cheese


preheat the oven to 400 degrees. place the open faced bread on a large cookie sheet. mix the pesto sauce with the mayonnaise and spread on both sides of the loaf of bread. top the bread with the sliced turkey. place the sliced cheese over the turkey. top with the sliced red onion. 

place in the oven for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. if you like extra condiments, add lettuce, etc to the sandwich before you close the sandwich and slice into individual pieces. enjoy!
