Gourmet Soup and Turkey Apple Panini


20 ounces lobster bisque (or other gourmet soup)
1 large tart apple (rinsed)
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup light Vidalia onion salad dressing
4 slices Bakery rustic sandwich bread
1/4 lb thin-sliced smoked honey turkey breast

  1. Preheat 2-sided tabletop grill. Transfer soup to medium saucepan. Cover and heat on medium, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Peel and core apple; slice apple thinly.
  2. Combine in small bowl, mayonnaise and salad dressing until blended. Spread mixture evenly on one side of all bread slices. Place 2 bread slices on work surface (coated side up): add 1/2 of the turkey to each, then 1/2 of the apple slices, and top with 1/2 of the cheese slices. Assemble sandwiches with remaining 2 bread slices.
  3. Coat grill with cooking spray. Place sandwiches on grill and press lid down firmly. Cook 5–6 minutes, occasionally pressing lid, until crisp and golden. Cut sandwiches in half using serrated knife. Transfer soup to serving bowls and serve.

Aprons Advice
