gluten free turkey and havarti panini

Panini is the perfect way to eat gluten free bread and this is one of our favorites. The havarti is mild enough to let the taste of the turkey shine through and adds just the right amount of salt and creaminess. Serve it with a side of cranberries and you’re in heaven! gluten free turkey and havarti paniniThis is great with any turkey but is especially good with leftovers from our marinated grilled turkey breast.

What you’ll need:

margarine or butter

2 slices of gluten free bread

TIP: We like to use Kinnikinnick Soft Hamburger Buns for this. Geoff slices off the crusts on the top and bottom, turning them into a kind of round, thick bread slice.

2 slices of havarti cheese

Plenty of turkey

Optional: Cranberries

What you’ll do:

Butter the outsides of your bun/bread.

Place one slice, butter side down, on the grill of your preheated panini press.

TIP: If you don’t have a panini press, you can grill the sandwich in the oven or in a frying pan, or you can try the double pan method as shown here.

TIP: If you are making both gf and non-gf sandwiches make sure you make the gf sandwiches first and line the top and bottom of the press with parchment paper to avoid cross contamination. If you are considering buying a press, I recommend one where the grills can be removed and washed in the dishwasher.

Layer with 1 slice of havarti. Cover the havarti with turkey and layer again with the final slice of havarti.

Place the second slice of bread on the top, butter side out.

Close your panini press and cook until the bread is toasted and the cheese melted.

Enjoy!
