Have a bunch of vegan Thanksgiving leftovers? Throw them on some bread and pop it in a panini press for a gobbler panini! I've never been a huge fan of the gobbler sandwich since turkey and cranberry sauce have never been my jam, but you can throw just about anything on a panini and I'm sold. The Gardein turkey cutlets are perfect for this: they get nice a crispy, and dipping the sandwich in the gravy packets that come in the bag takes it to the next level. This is definitely not a healthy lunch, but sure is a delicious one!
1 package of Gardein turkey cutlets
Leftover vegan stuffing (about 2 cups)
8 slices of thick sourdough bread
Preheat your panini press.
First, cook the turkey cutlets.
Once the panini press is warm, throw the Gardein turkey cutlets directly on the press. If you can't fit all 4, then just do 2 at a time.
Gently close the panini press (do not press down) and cook until the cutlets are warmed through.
Next, assemble a gobbler.
Take 2 pieces of sourdough bread and make sure they match up to make a sandwich.
Spread a thin layer of vegan butter on the outside of both slides (about
Spread a thin layer mayo on the inside of one of the slices.
Spread a thick layer of cranberry sauce on the inside of the other slice.
Top the cranberry side with a thick layer of stuffing (about 1/2 cup).
Top the stuffing with 1 cutlet.
Press the other slice of bread, mayo side down, on top of the cutlets.
Once the sandwich is assembled, grill the gobbler.
Carefully transfer the sandwich to your panini press and close the lid.
Press down and grill it for 3-4 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.
While the sandwich is grilling, heat up both gravy packets that come in the Gardein bag of turkey cutlets in a small bowl.
Remove the sandwich from the panini press and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
Repeat with the rest of the ingredients to make 3 more paninis.
Cut the paninis in half and serve with a side of gravy for dipping.
Tips and Tricks:
The stuffing should be room temp or slightly warmed for the best results.
If you can't find the Gardein turkey cutlets, any type of plantbased turkey or chicken cutlets will do.
Store any leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat in a panini press until the sandwich is warmed through.
