Christmas Leftovers Panini

Use up your Christmas leftovers with this tasty and savory sandwich.

Christmas and Thanksgiving leftovers are both a blessing and a curse. The meals are always amazing the night before, but eating them a second (or a third) time can leave a lot to be desired. That is why we are obsessed with this turkey cranberry panini recipe. This holiday recipe uses up all of your leftovers, yet makes a brand new meal!

From the Chef: For the first few days after Christmas, my fridge is packed with all sorts of oddly sized storage containers filled with leftovers. And while it's nice to experience "take two" of Christmas dinner, I love getting the chance to mix things up and reuse my leftovers to make something new and exciting.

Serves1

Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time8 min

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large slices bread (white or whole wheat)
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup turkey breast or ham pieces
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce

Instructions:

  1. Heat an electric griddle or panini press to medium heat.

  2. Spread the butter on 1 side of each slice of bread. Lay 1 slice of the cheese on the unbuttered side of 1 slice of bread. Spread the mustard and mayonnaise over the cheese. Top with the turkey, cranberry sauce, and remaining slice of cheese. Top with remaining slice of bread, butter-side up.

  3. Place on the electric griddle or press and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bread is toasted. If you don't have an electric griddle or press, feel free to use a ridged grill pan and press a cast-iron skillet on top. Serve.

Very good idea using leftovers. Whether leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas dinner, I think they will be more tasty because the flavors have been properly blended.
