Costco Turkey and Provolone Sandwich


This post may contain affiliate links.

Recently, I saw my friend Jamie share a recipe for a sandwich she had at the Costco “food court” (that’s what I call it).  Shortly after that, my hubby and oldest son had been at Costco and grabbed some lunch while they were there.  They were raving about a new sandwich they tried at the “food court” at Costco.  It just happened to be this turkey and provolone sandwich.  I decided I needed to do some research and to try the Costco Turkey and Provolone Sandwich for myself.  The things I have to do for you, my wonderful readers, right?

I went to Costco and gave the sandwich a try.  It was delicious!  I then went shopping at Costco for the ingredients to recreate the sandwich at home.  Now I used the ingredients from Costco, but you can get similar ingredients from your regular grocery store to make it.  If you get the ingredients from Costco, you will have enough turkey and rolls to make this recipe twice.  Then you will have extra pesto and provolone to use for other dishes.

My family loved the Costco turkey and provolone sandwich and gobbled them up.  However, some members had their sandwich made minus the onion and tomato.  Silly picky eaters that live at my house!  This was also a great quick dinner to prepare, basically ready in 15-20 minutes.

Costco Turkey and Provolone Sandwich


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto (I used the Kirkland Pesto)
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 5 Costco Torta rolls (or ciabatta rolls), sliced in half
  • 1 pound sliced cooked turkey breast (I used the Columbus Herbed Roasted Turkey Breast from Costco)
  • 10 thin slices of tomato
  • 1/2 red onion, cut into thin slices
  • 5 slices of provolone cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the pesto and mayo until well blended.
  3. Place the torta rolls halves, cut side up on a large baking sheet.
  4. Spread a spoonful of the pesto mixture on the cut side of each of the torta roll halves.
  5. Place two slices of the turkey on the bottom halves of the rolls.
  6. On the top half of the rolls, place two tomato slices on each followed by a few red onion rings. Then top with a slice or provolone.
  7. Place in the oven on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  8. Then place on broil and broil for a just a bit to get the cheese bubbly and a little brown.
  9. Put each of the turkey halves with the veggie halves and enjoy.

This was amazing and after making it quite a few times, I think I’ve tweaked it a bit better. First of all there needs to be at least twice as much turkey and cheese in order to make it similar to Costco, this recipe is way too conservative. Second, the choice of bun doesn’t matter as much. And third, the red onion needs to be cut thick.

On one half of the bun, put 2 slices of turkey, a slice or layer of provolone cheese, then 2 more slices of turkey. You can use even more turkey, the more the better! Costco had that sandwich thick! So, 4 to 6 slices of turkey should be good.

On the other half of the bun, put your thick sliced red onion then a layer of provolone. THEN put the nice thick sliced tomato on top. You want the oven to bake that tomato, not turn it sloppy inside your sandwich and make it soggy. The tomato will run into the bun if you don’t put it on top. Just like pineapple on a Hawaiian pizza, it goes on top of the cheese, to allow juices to evaporate, not run down into your food. The hot oven cooks and dries it out a bit.

I love this sandwich and with Costco cutting this from their menu, I’m sure glad this recipe was saved! Thank-you so much! And I hope my twist on your recipe is appreciated. I just had to comment and share.

This was delicious!! Came out so nice. And while I have skill in the kitchen…. I can still mess up anything LOL. It’s a forgiving recipe.
I was going to just wing it from memory and then I thought, “I wonder if someone wrote up a copycat recipe online….” Thank you so much Laura, you nailed it and took away all the guesswork! And it was soo easy, even for feeding a crowd (2 adults and 4 kids) at the end of a long day. All ate it very happily.
I used a served it with baked sweet potatoes (just take them as they come (skin on), scrub them clean under water and pop them on a (ungreased even!) pan, cook at say 400F for 40 min, amazing, needs nothing if you want a simple side) and quartered avocados, for a crazy simple fairly healthy dinner. I used actual Costco ciabatta rolls, turkey, sliced Havarti (Costco), red onion, pesto (Costco) and mayo. Tomato on Hubby’s. He complimented dinner twice, which is rare. Didn’t even measure the sauces, just eyeballed it.
I have missed these at Costco PLUS they make a crazy easy and yummy dinner. Printed this one and added it to my family recipes aka lifesavers. Thank you Laura!!! God bless you

Perfect! These are my sons favorite and he’s been bummed since Costco has eliminated the majority of their options during. For my son’s birthday I decided to see if I could find a copycat recipe. Found this one followed the directions exactly and they were perfect the entire family was so happy

Thanks for the recipe, I make these all the time now. So much easier to make for a picnic than waiting for Costco to open. I did go through the trouble of making my own ciabatta and that makes a huge difference!

I liked it, too, and just linked to your recipe in my blog.

I love these! Me and my prego self have been craving them and now I don’t HAVE to run to Costco to gobble one up! Thank you!

I just had this a couple of weeks ago and thought to myself I bet they have all the ingredients here at Costco and I can make them myself. Thank you these look so yummy!
