Savor the delightful combination of flavors and textures in these turkey croissant sandwiches. This simple sandwich sauce is what elevates this sandwich to something amazing.

First is the croissant for these turkey croissant sandwiches. I mean how can you lose when you start with a tender, flaky and buttery croissant. One quick tip is the freshen the croissants. Slice open and place on a baking sheet and broil to get a light golden brown color on the inside.

This just helps bring that crispness back to the croissant like it was fresh from the oven. This isn’t necessary, but worth it if you have the few extra minutes.


Then you have slices of that juicy turkey. After doing weight watchers, I’m pretty picky about the kind of turkey I use for sandwiches. One of my favorites is Hillshire Farms Naturals slow roasted turkey.

I pick up mine from Costco. This is also where I grab my croissant. They are fabulous and priced so well.

Next comes a slice of cheese. This sandwich uses Havarti cheese. It has a mild, buttery, and slightly tangy flavor. A cheese I often grab for sandwiches.

Now you add on some crisp fresh lettuce. I prefer to use romaine because it is so crisp.

Last, is that special sandwich sauce. It’s a combination of mayo, sour cream, honey Dijon mustard, and black pepper. I also use the light version or mayonnaise and sour cream. They are both healthier choices, but still taste just as good and their full fat versions.

This sandwich is wonderful for lunch or a quick dinner. It’s a perfect balance of savory, creamy and crunchy. Such a delicious turkey croissant sandwich!

Can I use regular sandwich bread instead of croissants?
Yes, you can substitute croissants with your preferred bread if you don’t have croissants on hand. However, croissants add a buttery and flaky texture that enhances the overall flavor of the sandwich.

Can I use leftover turkey instead of deli turkey slices?
Absolutely! Leftover roasted turkey works perfectly in this sandwich. Simply slice the leftover turkey thinly and use it in place of deli turkey slices.

Can I make this turkey sandwich ahead of time?
Yes, you can assemble the sandwiches ahead of time, but it’s best to wait to add any lettuce until just before serving to prevent the croissants from becoming soggy. Wrap the assembled sandwiches tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Can I add other toppings or condiments to the sandwich?
Absolutely! Feel free to customize your turkey croissant sandwich with your favorite toppings and condiments. Some popular options include tomato slice, avocado slices, cucumber slices, slices of bacon, sprouts, pickles, or cranberry sauce for a festive twist.
