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)

  • Cranberry sauce

  • Vegan mayo

  • Vegan butter

  • 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.
