Pesto and Turkey Grilled Cheese

Turkey Pesto Grilled Cheese

Sometimes we all just need some comfort food. One of my favorite comfort foods is grilled cheese. I also love biscuits and gravy but I’ll save that for another post. I decided to spice up my comfort food one night by making Pesto and Turkey Grilled Cheese. The basil pesto gives this sandwich a flavor boost! I always keep pesto around because it is a great addition to a variety of recipes. Next time you’re craving a grilled cheese give this grown-up Pesto and Turkey Grilled Cheese a try.

Did you know that Arkansas is the only state ranked in the top 10 of all three categories of poultry production?


  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 4 slices honey roasted turkey
  • 2 teaspoons basil pesto
  • Sharp white cheddar cheese, to taste
  • Butter


Heat large skillet to medium heat. Meanwhile, lightly spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place one slice, butter side down in pan, top with 1 teaspoon pesto, cheese, turkey and remaining slice of bread. Cook until the first side is toasted and flip to evenly toast the other side. Repeat with second sandwich. Serve immediately.
