Cover the cheese with thin slices of apple.  We used a mandolin to get thin slices.

Brush olive oil on both sides of the sandwich.

Grill the sandwich until the cheese is melted and the bread is well toasted.  We used our panini grill, but a grill pan or saute pan on the stove works also.

Chicken, Bacon, Pesto Melt also Known as “The New Light”

We decided to name this delicious sandwich after the Hippotherapy clinic my oldest daughter has.  A hippotherapy clinic is physical therapy on a horse.  Erin operates this clinic to help disabled children and adults gain strength and balance using horses as the therapy tool.

Ingredient List:

2 slices of sourdough bread

1 jar of pesto (can be found in the pasta section at the market)

2 slices of cooked bacon

2 slices of cheese of your choice (we used swiss)

1 tomato

1 package of cooked chicken strips ( found in the deli meat section at the market)

Spread pesto on both slices of bread

 Place one slice of cheese on top of each slice of bread

Place the bacon on one side of the sandwich.

Add the chicken on top of the bacon

Slice a small tomato

Place tomato slices on top of chicken

Put the other piece of bread on top to make the sandwich, then brush some olive oil on one side.

Place the sandwich with the olive oil side down in a grill pan or fry pan

You can place something heavy, like a bacon press or a cast iron skillet on the sandwich.

Brush the other side with olive oil and flip the sandwich over

Here’s the finished sandwich, delicious!
