How to Make Copycat Starbucks Turkey Pesto Panini

Gather Ingredients


Gather all ingredinets needed for the panini sandwich.

Assemble turkey paninis

Spread slices of bread with a tablespoon pesto sauce on each side. Top with red peppers, turkey, and provolone cheese.


 Heat sandwiches

Place assembled sandwiches in a lightly oiled nonstick skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Place a heavy cast iron skillet or heavy pan on top of sandwiches and cook until golden brown, flipping half way through – unless you have a panini press!


How to Bake Turkey Panini


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until cheese is melty. Press sandwich down with weighted pan. (Leave on while baking if it’s oven-safe.)
