Grilled Turkey, Brie, and Cranberry Panini

Grilled Turkey, Brie, and Cranberry Panini

[Editor's Note: This sandwich might sound like a great way to use Thanksgiving leftovers, but I'm going to assume you've done the right thing and don't have any of those left in your refrigerator, correct? Excellent. Still, if you haven't gotten enough Thanksgiving flavor, this hot and cheesy panini is a great way to get another hit of turkey and cranberry, no matter what the season! --Genie]

Grilled Turkey & Brie Cranwich

To whip up the sandwich at home, I added brie, omitted the cream cheese and red onion, and slathered generous amounts of a quick & easy homemade cranberry-apricot chutney (a sort of mash-up of these two recipes). No lopsided, assembly-line, lunch rush mess here! And bonus – the homemade cranberry-apricot chutney doesn’t cost nearly as much as the tiny jar from that shiny, gourmet kitchen store.

I really honestly do not feel that I'm showing my true self, and all the love I have to share, if I'm popping a tin of biscuits or mixing up some stove top. It makes me feel lazy and honestly quite sad—there is no love in that box; there's a ridiculous amount of sodium and who knows what other additives you get as a bonus. I promise I don't say that as an insult by any means, however I feel that so many people nowadays really do tell you you're crazy for doing things homemade. Why is that, and where does it come from? I mean, this is cranberries people. You dump them in a pot with sugar and boil it.   Read more >
