Turkey and Cranberry Panini

The only thing to be said with this recipe is that it definitely looks all kinds of yummy!  Again easy? Check! Thank you to Following In My Shoes for what looks like a super incredible recipe

Perfect “Turkey Sandwich” to use up your yummy, after-Thanksgiving leftovers.


    Ciabatta Rolls (one per person)
    Leftover Turkey (dark, white or combination), chopped
    Cranberry Sauce (2-4 TB per sandwich)
    Havarti Cheese (one slice per sandwich)
    Spinach and Arugula (I used bagged Spinach/Arugula salad mix)
    2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil or Melted Butter
    1-2 cloves of garlic, minced


In a small bowl, combine the olive oil (or melted butter, if preferred) with   the minced garlic. Set aside. If you have a panini press, use it. If not, place a large skillet or panini griddle on your stove, over medium heat.
Slice the ciabatta roll(s). Take the bottom half of the roll and, using a pastry or basting brush, brush the exterior side with the oil and garlic mixture.

Place the oiled side of bread on the skillet and then top it with the rest of the ingredients in the following order*: cheese, turkey, spinach/arugula, and then cranberry sauce.

Brush the exterior side of the remaining half of ciabatta roll and then place it on the sandwich, using a heavy saucepan or stock pot to “press down” on the panini (if you aren’t using a panini press).
