Brie & Turkey Panini

Brie & Turkey Panini | With Cajun Turkey

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? Cajun

Main Ingredients Needed

Have you guys tried cajun turkey 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. Here is what you will need to make these:

  • French Bread- you’ll want to cut the slices about 3/4 of an Inch thick.
  • Cajun Turkey Lunch Meat– found usually at the deli counter of your local grocery store.
  • Baby Spinach– washed
  • Brie Cheese-
  • Butter- softened

How To Make Brie & Turkey Panini | Directions

Basically, throw everything in between two slices of bread, slather in butter and press! Easy peasy. Here are the step by step directions. For full recipe details see the printable recipe card below.

Step 1: Prep

Turn on panini press and get it piping hot. Gather French Bread, butter, brie, turkey and spinach.

Step 2: Build The Brie & Turkey Sandwich

Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place butter side down on panini press, build your sandwich, ending with other piece of bread, butter side out. Now, press that bad boy in one of these wonderful inventions!

Step 3: Remove From Press + Serve

Once cheese is melted and desired crispiness of the bread is reached, remove from press. Cut in half and serve immediately. You’ve got yourself a purdy lookin’ lunch!

    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! 😀

    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.

    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.

  7. Esther @ Esther Eats!

    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!
