“For a tasty treat this weekend, treat family or friends and serve them paninis of toasted whole grains, melted aged cheddar, lean turkey and a burst of flavour from a Mcintosh apple - so good! I found the recipe in our local newspaper, and it is really good for the leftover turkey at holiday time, it makes something just a little different to use up the leftovers -”
2 sandwiches

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices aged cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 mcintosh apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 4 slices smoked turkey breast or 4 slices leftover turkey breast, will do
  • 2 teaspoons honey mustard

  2. Spread remaining two slices of bread with honey mustard and place on top of the turkey (mustard side down).
