There is a national restaurant chain which makes the most amazing Turkey Avocado BLT Croissant Sandwich… but their service is atrocious. At least in my neck of the woods it is. Every time we go, we vow to never return. Somehow we end up back there again, all because I am dying for their amazing sandwich. I have an obsession with sandwiches, you see, whether it is an Italian-style version or on a bagel or something slightly more exotic. Put things on bread and I’m sold. In any case, I have finally sworn off the Aforementioned Chain with the Lousy Service by simple recreating their best sandwich at home, and I’m happy to share it with you today.

If you missed my post on Best of Class ingredients, feel free to head over for a review, because the same concepts apply with this delicious sandwich. There is no gourmet cooking here to hide poor ingredients: What you see is what you get/eat/enjoy. So choose wisely.

Start by choosing the freshest, flakiest, butteriest croissants you can find. Try not to eat them all immediately… save some for sandwiches! Top with high quality turkey, thick-cut bacon, ripe, juicy tomatoes, and crisp green leaf lettuce. To finish this beauty off, slice up a Haas avocado (the ugly brown ones that taste the best) and place it on top. If desired, add mayonnaise to the top half of your sandwich. Of course you want to. It’s delicious. My favorite mayonnaise is Hellman’s (Best Yet to those of us West of the Rockies, but I’m not originally from West of the Rockies, so to me it’s still Hellman’s).

And there you have it: An easy yet DELICIOUS, swoon-worthy Turkey Avocado BLT Croissant Sandwich. And it’s wayyyyyy better than the one at your local chain restaurant because at your house, food is served with a smile and you actually refill the drinks occasionally. Be sure to tip your waitress!

    Luci’s Morsels – fashion. food. frivolity.

  2. My daughter was just asking what is the big deal with croissants. I realized she has never had one. Poor kid has been missing out. This sandwich looks so delicious!
    Love your new design. I need a change and really like this theme too :D

  3. Hi, Meggan! I love the new layout, too! I’m sure you need to put your feet up and reward yourself with one of these beautiful croissants now!
    I often get inspired by a cafe’s offerings and, yes, I’m afraid to say, frustrated by their service, too.
    P.S. I really love your photos in this post – so crisp and clean!

  4. Wait, what chain is this? I need you to name names! At any rate, screw them, because this sounds amazing and I’m all about the DIY and sticking it to the man. :)

  5. Hmmm, I can tell this one is super YUMMY only by reading the post title! But man, those croissant sandwich looks so good! I totally agree with you, the homemade sandwich tastes much better because you could select best and fresh ingredients. I actually would like grill the croissant with the cheese and bacon before adding any veggies. I will have trouble with stopping eating them :)
