Panera Smokehouse Turkey Panini

This Panera Smokehouse Turkey Panini recipe has three sources of smokey flavor: smoked chicken, smoked bacon, and smoked cheddar cheese. While the restaurant's recipes for all of the individual elements of this sandwich are not available to the general public, you can use similar ingredients to produce a meal that tastes very close to the original. The sandwich is simple to make, though you will need to start the flavored mustard a day in advance.
