Turkey Cheese Walnut Panini


8 thick slices of egg bread or whole grain bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices turkey
1 tablespoon walnuts, chopped
4 slices Havarti cheese
1/4 cup cranberry chutney


Butter one side of each bread slice. Turn 4 pieces butter side down on a work surface. Arrange 2 slices of turkey on each piece of bread. Sprinkle with walnut pieces. Top each with a slice of Havarti. Spread cranberry chutney on the unbuttered side of remaining slices of bread and place butter side up.

Grill on a preheated panini grill or in a skillet until sandwiches are golden on both sides and cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Sliced ham, old white cheddar cheese and honey mustard.
  • Sliced roast beef, brie and horseradish mayonnaise.
  • Sliced roast pork, stilton and apricot preserves.
