Everyone has loads of Turkey left over after Christmas dinner and one of my favourite Christmas leftover meals is Christmas panini. They’re so great because they use up a lot of things from the fridge. They taste amazing too and the combination of Turkey, bacon and cranberry goes so well with the Brie. I don’t have a panini press. It would be just another thing on my worktops. I use my Tefal OptiGrill which works just as well. If you don’t have either, you can dry fry your panini in a large frying pan, put a plate or something heavy on the top so it goes nice and crispy! If you do use a frying pan, you won’t get the fancy lines but the end result will taste just as good.
This is a fabulous way to use up any Christmas leftovers in a way that will be loved by everyone. It’s a quick snack or can be served as part of a main meal. Either way, your diners will not be disappointed and you won’t be throwing away any half eaten jars of cranberry jelly or any unfinished Brie from your cheese board. You can even add very finely sliced leftover sprouts (if you wanted to!)
