Turkey, Cranberry & Dressing Panini



It’s time for one of my favorite after-Thanksgiving recipes. This Turkey, Cranberry and Dressing Panini is easy to make and uses all of your favorite Thanksgiving leftovers. Just take a few slices of turkey, some dressing (stuffing), cold gravy, and cranberry sauce stacked on some hearty bread and grill it into a golden brown piece of heaven. You don’t even have to heat up the ingredients before hand — they all cook up together in the pan. This panini is like a mini-holiday feast in your mouth. We upped the ante here by using Pumpkin Bread. Yum!



  • 2 thick slices of day old bread
  • turkey breast, sliced
  • turkey dressing
  • cranberry sauce
  • cold gravy
  • 3 sage leaves, finely chopped
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • butter, softened


  1. Spread one slice of bread with a thin layer of cold gravy.
  2. Layer the sandwich with slices of turkey, dressing, and more gravy. Season with salt and pepper and top with sage.
  3. Spread a thick layer of cranberry sauce on the other slice of bread.
  4. Butter each side of the sandwich. Toast in cast iron skillet until brown and crisp on both sides.



About Worth Stopping By . . .

I am a blogger who would rather talk than write. I enjoy traveling, family time, friends and food/fine dining. I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
