Cajun Turkey & Brie Panini

Cajun Turkey and Brie PaniniI found one of the best kept secrets at my grocery store. I found me some cajun turkey, friends. Did I just sound southern there, or was that just in my head?

Pretty sure I could eat my whole body weight in this sweet blessed turkey. #holyamazingnessbatman

Have you guys tried this stuff before? It’s like crack….but waaaay better for you. When I went to the store the other day, it was hiding in the deli behind the salami with no tag. It was seriously incognito. ANYWAYS, I was pushy, got me a sample and then bought 2 pounds. No joke. So, once I got home, the only logical thing to do was make a panini.

Basically, throw everything in between two slices of bread, slather in butter and press! Easy peasy.

I took a few extra photos for guidance if you attempt to make this, but really, it’s crazy simple.

First start out with some panini-worthy materials:
Ingredients Turkey Panini Oh and plug in your panini press to get it piping hot.
Panini 1 Build up your sandwich and coat the outside with buttuh. Lots of buttuh. I love buttuh.
Panini 2 Now, press that bad boy in one of these wonderful inventions! Loves it.
Panini 3 2 minutes later, you’ve got yourself a purdy lookin’ lunch!
