Turkey Chipotle Panini, Turkey Meatloaf
A little extra kick and some kettle chips just might be the perfect addition to your typical Thanksgiving dinner.

The popular sandwich is full of flavor with roast turkey, hot peppers, jalapenos, provolone cheese and raspberry chipotle. For a more home-cooked feel, try Angelina’s hearty homemade turkey meatloaf off the dinner menu, a lighter option from your typical meatloaf, which is served with roasted or mashed potatoes and veggies. Panini $11, meatloaf $15. There is also a $25 family-size take-and-bake option, served with a baguette and mashed potatoes only.
Gobbler Special Panini, California/Mediterranean Wrap
Dorothy Ann Bakery & Café
Instead of gorging yourself with a traditional holiday feast, fill yourself up with a smaller but equally as delicious portion of a hot panini, pickles and a cookie. The gobbler special is complete with roasted turkey breast, provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, sundried tomatoes, mayo and pesto spread served on bakery-fresh focaccia. Or if wraps are more your style, try a classic California wrap with turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, guacamole, pepper jack cheese and mayo spread or a Mediterranean wrap with turkey, salami, ham, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and house special Greek dressing. Your choice of white, wheat or spinach wrap. Panini $6.99, wrap $5.49.
