  • Sourdough bread
  • Mustard
  • Avocado mayo
  • Organic American cheese (or your favorite cheese)

  1. Prepare the Spread: Begin by mixing mustard and avocado mayo in a bowl. The combination of these two condiments creates a unique flavor that complements the turkey and cranberries beautifully.
  2. Assemble the Sandwich: Take two slices of sourdough bread and spread the mustard and avocado mayo mixture on one side of each slice. Add a slice of organic American cheese on top of the spread. If you prefer a different type of cheese, feel free to substitute.
  3. Add the Turkey and Cranberries: Layer thick slices of turkey on top of the cheese. Then, sprinkle a generous amount of cranberries over the turkey. The cranberries add a burst of flavor and a touch of sweetness that makes this panini truly special.
  4. Grill to Perfection: Butter both sides of the bread and place the sandwich on a grill or panini press. Grill the sandwich until the cheese is perfectly melted and the bread is golden brown and crispy.
  5. Serve and Enjoy: Once your turkey cranberry panini is grilled to perfection, it’s ready to be served. Cut it in half to reveal the melty cheese and enjoy the harmony of flavors in each bite.
