Turkey and Brie Panini Sandwich with Cranberry Sauce and Apples

This panini is a great change of pace from your more “traditional” turkey sandwich. I start with three cheese semolina bread, and then add leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, brie and Granny Smith apple slices. I use my old George Foreman grill to heat up this wonderful sandwich, but you can just use a skillet and cook it grilled-cheese style.

This is so good – the creaminess of the brie and the tartness of the Granny Smith apples go great with the turkey and the tanginess of the cranberry sauce. If you don’t have brie on hand, Swiss cheese is a good alternative. It’s a great way to use your leftover turkey, and just one of the recipes I mention in my  recent “Let’s Talk Turkey” post.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of good bread
  • 3-4 slices of leftover turkey
  • 1-2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce
  • 3-4 pieces of brie
  • 2-3 slices of a Granny Smith apple
  • Butter or margarine

Preparation

Place the turkey on one of the slices of bread, and top with the apple. Spread the other slice with the cranberry sauces, and add a few pieces of brie.

Butter the bread on both sides, and place in a panini maker, George Foreman grill or a skillet. Brown on both sides until the bread is golden and the brie is melting and gooey.

Serve with chips or a nice bowl of soup.

Bon appétit!

Eat, drink and be merry!
