Recipe: Turkey Cranberry Panini

By on November 27, 2012 in Recipes with 5 Comments

A Turkey Cranberry Panini is a great sandwich to fix when you crave the flavors of Thanksgiving. Because let’s face it, Thanksgiving foods are so good they should be eaten more than just 1 day.

You can use leftover turkey meat for this or roast a turkey breast just to make sandwiches with. Of course chicken meat or deli turkey could be used as well.

Any mild-flavored cheese could be substituted for the swiss- provolone, fontina, and mozzarella would all be good.

Turkey Cranberry Panini

  • 1/3 cup whole cranberry sauce
  • 3 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 loaf foccacia or ciabatta bread, cut in half horizontally and then into 4 sandwich size pieces
  •  leftover sliced turkey, enough for 4 sandwiches
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  1. In a small bowl, mix together cranberry sauce, horseradish, and mayonnaise. Set aside.
  2. Heat a panini grill according to manufacturer’s directions.
  3. Spread cranberry mixture on inside of each piece of bread. Layer one slice of cheese on top of cranberry sauce. (I like a piece of cheese on both the top and lower piece of bread because it helps hold the sandwich together.)
  4. Top the bottom piece of bread for each sandwich with turkey and 2 slices of bacon. Cover with bread tops, cranberry sauce and cheese side facing down. ( you can spread some olive oil or melted butter on the outside of the bread, but I usually just give the panini pan a light coating of cooking spray.)
  5. Place one sandwich at a time  (or more if you can make them fit) in the panini press and cook until cheese is melted and bread is toasty.

Yield: 4 sandwiches
