Turkey, Bacon & Feta Paninis

No more boring turkey sandwiches! These flavorful paninis are the perfect way to use up leftover cranberry sauce and turkey. Use ready-made bacon and pre-washed spinach for a quick and delicious Thanksgiving leftover-makeover! These are also great assembled on leftover corn bread. —Lisa Speer, Palm Beach, Florida
