Turkey Broccoli Cheddar Panini

Turkey Broccoli Cheddar Panini

I had the idea to make this sandwich for weeeeeeeeks. In my head I was thinking of the beauty of roasted broccoli & melted cheddar mixed with the crispy crunch grilled foccacia. It had to be mine. Oh yes, it had to be mine. I can’t begin to tell you how much brain energy went into thinking about this sandwich. #ALOT.

And when I went to execute it, my husband suggested I put turkey up in it. WHAAAT?! My food fantasy went screeching to a halt. Turkey? Hmmm. I think he wanted me to recreate his favorite hot pocket flavor… You know, to maybe reminisce on his bachelorhood.
