Turkey and Kale Panini & Stonewall Kitchen Giveaway

by Erin

This turkey, pepperjack, and kale panini perfected with the addition of maple bacon aioli. Spread it on just about anything and you won’t be sorry.

Turkey and Kale Panini

August is National panini month. Paninis are just fancy grilled cheeses and I happen to love all forms of grilled cheese. This particular version was dreamed up when I received a jar of Stonewall Kitchen’s maple bacon aioli. Bacon makes everything better and the sweetness of the maple seemed perfect for turkey. Then I slapped on a little heat with pepperjack cheese and some healthy stuff in the form of kale. Yea it was good, so much so that I also spread it on top of a steak.

But I don’t want to be a tease so I am giving away a jar of the aioli to try out for yourself. Just use the Rafflecopter widget located at the bottom of this post. If you need more motivation,  on their website they also had a recipe for hot spinach and artichoke dip with this aioli in it – that has got to be tasty. Get a jar, make it and this sandwich, and then serve it together. And then continue to spread the aioli on everything in sight.

4 slices sourdough bread

4 Tbsp Stonewall Kitchen’s maple bacon aioli

6-8 thick slices of deli turkey breast meat

1 kale leaf, stemmed and torn

Butter, softened


  1. Preheat panini press (or skillet with butter) to medium-low.
  2. Meanwhile, spread aioli on all four slices of bread. Top two slices with turkey, cheese, and kale. Sandwich with the other slices and butter the outsides.
  3. Add your sandwich to the panini press and cook until golden and crisp, 3-5 minutes. (Alternatively, add your sandwich to the preheated skillet, press with a heavy pan on top to weigh it down. Cook until golden and crisp, 3-5 minutes per side.) Slice and serve.

I would definitely make several kinds of paninis with this! The product I would like to try most from Stonewall kitchen is cilantro lime dressing and the white truffle oil!

I think maple bacon aioli would be great on pan-fried pork chops.

Maple Bacon Aioli sounds like heaven! I would love to try this on a panini with spinach, cajun turkey, and pepperjack!

I think I would most likely make your panini… :-) I looked at the site and I think I might like the Texas rub (I do live in Texas, after all), or the balsamic fig salad dressing?

Sarah August 5, 2014 - 6:16 pm

The bacon aioli is intriguing but I’m not sure how I would use it. I would like to try out their blueberry honey though! And one of the preserves (or several). Oh they sell peanut butter too? Cool!

Maureen August 5, 2014 - 5:22 pm

Besides the Aoili in such a great flavor I would love to try the Herbes de Provence Dipping Oil

I think I’d like to use the bacon aioli on a panini as well–perhaps a roasted veggie and brie cheese panini

Madeline August 5, 2014 - 12:40 pm

I’d make a grilled cheese sandwich with cheddar, roasted broccoli, and the aioli!!
