All you need to make this recipe gluten-free is good gluten-free bread and Udi’s is my absolute favorite. Udi’s had a booth set up at BlogHer12 in NYC and I was so glad they were there. I took the opportunity to tell Udi’s PR folks that I live in 1937 and that whenever I gas up the old Delorian and head to civilization, I take a cooler so I can stock up on all my favorite gluten-free products. And people of the internet– I don’t promote anything on my blog that I am not completely in love with (they are not paying me to say this. I would LET them. But they are not.) and Udi’s hands down has the best gluten-free products on the market. The pizza crusts, muffins, bread, cookies, granola– good lord, I’m hungry. My diet would not be very fun without Udi’s. Fo realz.
You can make this recipe with any bread. If you aren’t gluten-free, a crusty piece of French bread would rock this sammie’s world. At any rate, after I professed my undying love and devotion to Udi’s, they sent me a box full of treats for Back to School lunches– (my kid’s love the Glutino pretzels and the Udi’s Cookies if they can find them after I hide them) and just asked that I share the love. And that I can do.
Here is what you need for the best sandwich of your life:
Bell peppers – red, orange, yellow. Any color will do and I just discovered the mini-peppers. HOLY COW. So good.
Bread, toasted- Obvs, I used Udi’s.
Good deli meat. Chicken or turkey works but make sure you get it shaved really thin!
Pesto sauce– if you make your own you are on the wrong website.
We are making a SANDWICH here, so don’t be all, “But HOW MUCH do I need??” You need however much you are going to eat. Come on, people.
Slice the peppers thin and in a teensy bit of olive oil, cook them on the stove until they start to get a little tender. Put on a plate and set aside.
Slice your turkey or chicken meat so that it’s almost shredded, if you got it sliced thin at the deli this should be EZPZ. Add the meat to the pan and toss in a couple of spoonfuls of pesto. Like pesto? Add more!
Toast the bread and while it is still warm spread both slices with goat cheese. Pour turkey pesto mixture onto the bread and top with peppers.
