California Croissant Sandwiches


  • Makes4 servings

Pick up some freshly baked flaky croissants at the bakery to make these fancy-pants sandwiches for dinner. You can, of course, use leftover grilled chicken, or other meat, instead of the sliced deli turkey if you want.


  • 4 croissants

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 large ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 250 g sliced deli turkey

  • 1 cup alfalfa sprouts, rinsed and well drained

  • salt, to taste

  • black pepper, to taste


  • Slice the croissants horizontally and lay them all out on a platter. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the cut sides. Now, using ¼ of the ingredients for each sandwich, first arrange a layer of avocado slices, then the turkey and finally the alfalfa sprouts. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover with the top halves of the croissants.
