Turkey and Pesto Croissant Sandwiches



These sandwiches were a great hit with us because Jace loves pesto and I enjoy almost any kind of sandwich. One of Jace’s favorite places to eat is Which Wich because he can get his favorite sandwich, a grilled turkey and pesto sandwich. I decided that I couldn’t let his favorite sandwich be from a fast food chain, and I needed to make a better one. I used our roasted turkey recipe (that is amazing by the way), but I just roasted a turkey breast. That was much easier than handling a whole turkey. Believe me, it’s worth your time to roast your own turkey but if you can’t any deli sliced turkey will do. I served this with some awesome buttermilk potato soup and it was a great meal.

Turkey and Pesto Croissant Sandwiches
Several slices of roasted turkey breast
2 cups basil
3 cloves garlic
handful of grated Parmesan cheese
handful of pine nuts
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
4 large croissants

In a food processor or blender (I prefer the food processor) throw the basil, garlic, handful of Parmesan cheese, handful of pine nuts, salt and pepper into the bowl. Start the food processor or blender and drizzle the olive oil in until it is to the consistency you want. Taste and adjust as you would like. I added a little more basil after I was done, but everyone’s different when it comes to pesto.
Cut your croissant in half and smooth out a layer of pesto over the bread. Add the turkey and throw the sandwiches in the oven for 3-5 minutes just to warm them through.
Put them back together and enjoy!
