Apple-Cheddar Turkey Panini

We all know you’ve been having reheated leftover Thanksgiving turkey this past week; or at least I have, and if I see anymore traces of turkey or stuffing in my house from this day forward, there’s a high possibility I’ll strangle myself with this chord of Christmas lights. So take this opportunity to use up the rest of that turkey lurking in the back of your fridge, and make room for Christmas cookies, and LOTS of them, because I will be posting twelve Christmas treats throughout this month until you have tested positive for diabetes.
