Turkey and Cranberry Panini

I decided to use up the leftover turkey for lunch today, and this recipe is one of our family favourites. Its a savoury, sweet, tangy mouthful of deliciousness. So simple to make and they went down a treat.

Turkey and Cranberry Panini

2 slices bread eg ciabatta or a panini roll
1 oz grated Chedder or other good melting cheese
2-3 slices leftover turkey 
2 tablespoons whole cranberry sauce
¼ cup baby spinach leaves
2 teaspoons honey mustard
1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Place one slice of bread on a cutting board and sprinkle on half of the cheese.  
  • Arrange the turkey slices on top of the cheese and then top with the cranberry sauce and spinach.  
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.  
  • Spread the honey mustard on the second slice of bread and close the sandwich. 
  • Heat a Panini press or a grill pan or skillet over medium heat.  
  • Brush the outside of the panino with olive oil on both sides and place it on the Panini press.  
  • Close the press and cook for 3-5 minutes until the bread is toasted and the cheese melts.  
  • If you don’t have a Panini press, place the panino on a grill pan or skillet and place another skillet weighted with a couple of cans on top.  After 1-2 minutes, remove the skillet, flip the panino over and repeat the process on the second side.  
  • Cut in half and serve hot.

  1. Ooooh, this sounds yummy! Too bad hubby cooked up the leftover turkey and made it into turkey-a-la-king. I would have loved to try this! Will need to bookmark it and try it with chicken. :0)
