Gouda Cheese

My boys and I love to make mini turkey melts as the next day’s meal. They’re like a homespun panini-pain perdu of sorts. I take all of yesterday’s best French bread (New Orleans style, of course) sliced thinly, then lightly lather it with whipped honey butter on the outside. Inside, spread some dressing, turkey, homemade cranberry relish, then add slices of Gouda cheese for the finish. Toast each side lightly in a nonstick pan, press down to flatten, and when you see the Gouda oozing out the sides, then it’s ready to chow down on.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices French bread
  • 1 tablespoon whipped honey butter (1 teaspoon honey, 2 tablespoons butter)
  • 1 tablespoon leftover stuffing
  • 2-3 slices cooked turkey
  • 1/2 tablespoon leftover cranberry relish
  • 1 slice Gouda cheese

Directions

Spread the whipped honey butter on one side of each slice of bread. Layer the ingredients in between the 2 slices of bread, with the honey butter sides facing outwards.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat, and place one side of the sandwich onto the warm pan.  Press and flatten with a spatula until the bread is toasted, about 3-5 minutes. Flip the sandwich and repeat on the other side. Once the Gouda is oozing out of the sides, it is ready to enjoy.
