Avocado Turkey Paninis ~ Game Day Eatin’ and a Giveaway

Is entertaining your thing?  If it is I know that sometimes it’s hard to find something new to serve that’s easy on the pocketbook, has some nutrients packed into it and doesn’t keep you away from your guests.  That’s where these Avocado Turkey Paninis come in.  You can make these up in advance and when you are ready to serve them, fire up the panini maker and crank these babies out and you’ll be ready to ‘Play Ball’ with your guests rather than staying in the kitchen {baseball….World Series….get it? I am such a goober}.

The All Star of this Recipe is the Avocado Spread ~ you can make this spread ahead and refrigerate it for up to 3 days to use on sandwiches anytime.

Avocado Turkey Paninis:


1 ripe avocado mashed

1/2 cup mayonnaise

Mix together well.


Ciabatta bread {1 loaf} or rolls {8}

1 pound Smoked Turkey Breast

8 slices of Provolone Cheese

2 cups of fresh spinach leaves

Olive Oil to brush the Ciabatta

1.  Slather one half of your ciabatta with the Avocado Spread.

2.  Layer other half of the ciabatta with the turkey, provolone and spinach.

3.  Close up your sandwich.

4.  Brush with olive oil on both outer sides of the ciabatta and place on preheated panini press for 5 to 7 minutes.

It’s a great idea to keep Fresh Avocados from Mexico on hand.  Why you may ask ~ well, they’ve got the bases covered.

Fresh Avocados from Mexico are:

  • Available year-round.
  • Have only 50 Calories in one ounce {fresh}.
  • Enhance recipes with a creamy, deep, rich flavor that contributes nearly 20 {yep 20} vitamins and minerals {talk about a nutritional boost}.


You can add Avocados to dips, chili, salads and desserts.  One of my family’s favorite recipes are my Avocado Cupcakes with Avocado Buttercream Frosting {My husband requested this recipe for his birthday cake this year}.
