Turkey BLT Croissant sandwich ingredients.

Ingredient notes

  • Turkey: Or substitute leftover roasted turkey.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Working with one sandwich at a time, or assembling all four simultaneously, arrange 4 ounces turkey meat on the bottom half of a croissant. Top each with 2 slices of bacon, a lettuce leaf, tomato slices, and avocado slices. Season the tomato and avocado slices to taste with salt and pepper.

  1. 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 :)5 stars

  3. 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 stars

  4. 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!5 stars

  5. 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 :D5 stars

    1. Thank you so much! The new look was born out of desperation and tears, but it’s a good change. I’m very happy. Thank you for helping me work out the kinks… and for sharing your bacon!
