I have a small confession to make. I am known, on occasion, to stand in front of my fridge with the doors wide open, digging through to find something to snack on. Well, on one such occasion, I happened to find turkey breast lunchmeat, some cooked bacon and a California Avocado sitting in my fridge.

I took the bacon and warmed it up in the microwave to rejuvenate it. It got reaaaaal crispy. I stuck in on top of my sliced turkey breast and then cut up some avocado and placed in on top. I rolled it up and… oh mama! It was the most delicious thing ever!

That’s oddly enough how I got the inspiration for this gorgeous sandwich.

It’s vital that the bacon is crispy. It’s a texture thing. With the creamy avocado and soft croissant covering the tender side of the sandwich, you get a fabulous crunch from the crisp bacon, cucumber and onion. 

It’s a party in your mouth.

Turkey Bacon Avocado Croissants 
 

Serves: 4

Prep time: 5-10 minutes

Total time: 25-35 minutes

Ingredients
1 lb. thick cut bacon
4 large croissants, split in half
4 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
4 large leafy green lettuce leaves 
8 thick slices of peppered turkey breast
1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced

Directions

1. Cook the bacon until really crisp. I bake mine in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees F.  Drain the cooked slices on a paper towel lined plate and pat dry.

2. Assemble your sandwich on the halved croissant. Spread 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard on the croissant, top with a large leafy green lettuce leaf followed by two slices of turkey breast, ¼ of the sliced California Avocado, ¼ of the purple onion and ¼ of the sliced cucumber. Top with the top half of the croissant.

3. Repeat for the rest of the sandwiches. Enjoy!
