This turkey, pepperjack, and kale panini perfected with the addition of maple bacon aioli. Spread it on just about anything and you won’t be sorry.
August is National panini month. Paninis are just fancy grilled cheeses and I happen to love all forms of grilled cheese. This particular version was dreamed up when I received a jar of Stonewall Kitchen’s maple bacon aioli. Bacon makes everything better and the sweetness of the maple seemed perfect for turkey. Then I slapped on a little heat with pepperjack cheese and some healthy stuff in the form of kale. Yea it was good, so much so that I also spread it on top of a steak.
But I don’t want to be a tease so I am giving away a jar of the aioli to try out for yourself. Just use the Rafflecopter widget located at the bottom of this post. If you need more motivation, on their website they also had a recipe for hot spinach and artichoke dip with this aioli in it – that has got to be tasty. Get a jar, make it and this sandwich, and then serve it together. And then continue to spread the aioli on everything in sight.
