Turkey Panini With Cranberry Dressing


After the ball – when it’s quiet again – and you would like another taste of the turkey – try this sandwich!

Thanks to its use of leftover turkey, stuffing, gravy AND cranberries, this pressed sandwich is the king of post-Thanksgiving dishes.

A delicious way to revisit Thanksgiving dinner on a bun.

Turkey Panini With Cranberry Dressing


4 slices day old bread, like ciabatta
12 tablespoons of gelatinous cold gravy
10 slices cooked turkey breast, sliced
1⁄2 cup turkey stuffing
12 tablespoons cranberry sauce
kosher salt
ground black pepper
6 sage leaves, chopped fine
4 tablespoons butter, softened


Spread two slices of bread with thin layer of cold gravy.

Layer the sandwiches with slices of turkey, stuffing, more gravy and cranberry sauce, to taste.

Season with salt & pepper and top with chopped sage leaves.

Spread a thick layer of cranberry sauce on the other slices of bread.

Butter sides of the sandwich, on the outside; then toast on a preheated sandwich grill, a cast iron skillet or non-stick frying pan, pressing firmly on each side until golden brown.
