Turkey and Cranberry Panini + Goat Cheese Aioli
Serves 1
I always seem to have an abundance of turkey and cranberry sauce left over after Christmas and Thanksgiving, so I decided to go with a turkey & cranberry panini with goat cheese aioli. The sweet cranberry sauce pairs perfectly with the tangy goat cheese and anise flavored tarragon. I tell ya, it’s a match made in heaven.
