Cranberry/Dijon Spread: combine the first three ingredients together in a blender until smooth and spreadable.
Cream Cheese with Garlic and Herbs: Combine the cream cheese with finely minced garlic, dill and pepper.
Spread the cream cheese on one slice of the bread, and the cranberry/dijon on the other piece of bread. Load up your panini with the swiss cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, turkey and ham. (Pile as high as you want!) Next fry your panini on a lightly greased pan over medium-high heat. If you want the panini marks like mine, use a panini maker :D Cook on each side for about 4 minutes, or until cheese melts. Enjoy!
