It’s the day after Thanksgiving and all through the house, not a creature is stirring, not even your spouse.
The turkey is placed in the stock pot with care, in hopes that a soup soon will be there.
The smell of more cooking wakes all your guests. They’re hungry now, is there anything left?
While a turkey sandwich is far from an earth shattering idea for Thanksgiving leftovers, we do hope you’ll get some inspiration to add goat cheese and bacon to take your turkey sandwich from “this is a good use of leftovers” to a standalone, cravable plate!
Leftover Turkey Panini
- 4 slices sturdy bread of your choice
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ¾ pound leftover turkey
- ¼ cup leftover cranberry sauce
- 2 tablespoons mayo
- 6 slices cooked bacon
- sliced red onion
- 2 ounces goat cheese
- 2 slices Muenster cheese
- Heat a skillet or panini press to medium high heat. In a small bowl mix mayo and cranberry sauce together. Place the bread slices on a plate and spread with cranberry mixture on one side of each piece of bread. Layer bread slices with turkey, bacon, onion, goat cheese and Muenster.
- Melt butter in the hot skillet or panini press. Add sandwiches and gently press down to melt everything together. When the outside is golden brown and the cheese is melted, remove from heat and enjoy!
