Cook Method


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Ground Turkey
3 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ cup mayonnaise
16 slices sandwich bread
2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese
Pizza sauce, warmed for dipping


  1. In skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add ground turkey. Stir to crumble, approximately 14 to 16 minutes. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Stir in 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder and onion powder.

  2. In small bowl, combine remaining Italian seasoning and mayonnaise.

  3. Heat large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Spread mayonnaise mixture on one side of each bread slice. Add 4 slices bread, mayonnaise side down, to skillet. Top each with 1/4 cup turkey mixture and ¼ cup cheese. Top with 4 bread slices. Spread tops with mayonnaise mixture. Cook over medium low heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until bread is nicely browned and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 8 sandwiches.
