I know it seems a little early to already be thinking about Thanksgiving leftovers, but here is an absolutely fabulous recipe for using up that leftover turkey.
On our last trip to North Carolina, my husband and I had lunch at a charming restaurant in Highlands. My husband had, you guessed it, a Turkey, Brie and Apple Panini which he raved about.
A few weeks ago we hosted our Supper Club for an early Thanksgiving feast and had some leftover turkey, so I decided to try and recreate the sandwich my husband liked so much.
The ingredients are simple: Turkey, Brie, Apples, Apple Butter and Ciabatta Rolls.
This recipe makes two paninis, but you can easily increase amounts to make more.
To begin, spread your bread liberally with apple butter.
Top each slice with sliced brie, a few slices of turkey, sliced apples and add more sliced brie.
If you have a panini press, at this point, spread melted butter on the outside of your rolls, and toast your sandwich according to your press’s directions. However, if you are like me and don’t have a panini press, you can use a grill pan and your heavy cast iron skillet. Simply butter your rolls and put in your grill pan on medium heat. Top with your cast iron skillet and press down. After about 3-4 minutes, check to see if the bottom is toasted and your brie is melted and flip over and toast the other side.
Doesn’t this look yummy!
