  • 2 rolls Ciabatta bread
  • 12 slices smoked turkey breast
  • 2 slices Havarti cheese
  • 12 oz jar hot or mild jalapeno peppers
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • olive oil to brush onto the bread before cooking


  • Slice each bread roll in half and spread mayonnaise on both slices. Then spread Dijon mustard on only one of the halves. Dijon mustard has a pretty strong taste, therefore I don't put it on both halves.
  • Add 6 slices of smoked turkey breast to each halve. Then layer on a desired amount of jalapenos, and one slice of Havarti cheese.
  • Place the two halves together and dab a little bit of olive oil onto the top and bottom of the bread before placing it onto the panini press. A pastry brush would work as well.
  • Place the panini onto the heated press and keep closed for about 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown.
