Thanksgiving in a Panini

So this last month has been crazy between the Bundt cake competition, Birthdays in P’s family and his brother getting married. So I feel like I have been neglecting my blog. So I am going to try to be better, I promise. I do however have another competition to get ready for, it is for my work. This one does not have a cash prize but the bragging rights are fantastic to have. I have won the top prize both years I have worked there can anyone say 3 peat! This year the theme is sandwiches, so any kind of sandwich or wrap or something like that will be allowed. So I had to put my thinking cap on and try to decide what to make. So this is my first contender. I don’t know about you but most of my sandwich ideas normally come from one of the ingredients and I build from there so when I saw the cranberry cheddar cheese at Whole Foods I just knew I had to buy it and try to make something with it.

Thanksgiving in a Panini

½ of a loaf of good white Italian bread, cut into slices

½ of a pound of turkey lunch meat ( I used honey flavored)

3 big slices of cranberry cheddar cheese

1 apple sliced into thin pieces

Assembly –

I know I probably don’t have to tell you what to do but here goes anyway. Take a slice of the bread and then layer in this order on top of it turkey, apple slices, cheese. Then top off with the other piece of bread. Press on your Panini maker or in a skillet with a weight until the bread is crusty and the cheese is melted. Slice and enjoy.

Now P and I both agreed that this is missing something so I will have to work on that but for my first try it was pretty good.
