Cajun Turkey & Brie Panini

I 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:


 Oh and plug in your panini press to get it piping hot.

Build up your sandwich and coat the outside with buttuh. Lots of buttuh. I love buttuh.

 Now, press that bad boy in one of these wonderful inventions! Loves it.

    Ahhh that looks delicious! I recently got a panini press, so I will be using it a lot more often! If your deli sells Dietz and Watson meats, try the buffalo style chicken…it’s amazing!

    Umm, I think I need a panini maker for Christmas. And just fyi – if you’re lovin’ that cajun turkey, see if you can find the buffalo chicken. It too, is all kinds of awesome.

    Love me some panini! I’ve never heard of Cajun turkey. I’ll have to check next time I’m at the deli. I know they have a tex mex turkey, and lately I have been on a buffalo turkey kick with some pepperjack cheese. Yum. Cajun I’ll need to give a try next time I’m there.

    This sounds fabulous! On Black Friday I made brie, cranberry sauce, and turkey quesadillas with the leftovers. I am in love with the turkey and brie flavor combo – utter deliciousness! 😀
