Turkey Bacon Club

Published by on

If you’re a regular reader of Paula’s Plate, you may recall my previous post for garlic herb bread. As I said, this is my favorite sandwich bread, as it adds an incredible amount of garlicky herby flavor to any plain-jane sandwich.
After making one of my favorite sandwiches for lunch yesterday, I had to snap a picture and share it with you. So easy, yet so very delicious, this Turkey Bacon Club makes a filling lunch or a refreshing, simple dinner on a busy weeknight.
Now this isn’t some boring turkey sandwich. Oh no. This tasty treat is filled with smoked turkey, crispy turkey bacon, fresh green lettuce, juicy red tomatoes, and creamy smooth avocado. Shmear on a generous layer of garden vegetable cream cheese, and smoosh between two fresh slices of garlic herb bread and bam! 
You’re in sandwich heaven.
Admittedly, this isn’t really a recipe, it’s more just a yummy combination of flavors, but I will list the ingredients below anyway. So quickly go make this sandwich, and then come back and read about the exciting new Kraft Delicious Bytes contest below; an easy entry with cash at stake? Yes please!

Turkey Bacon Club

Serves 4

  • 8 slices of garlic herb bread – toasted
  • 4 crisp iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 8 thin tomato slices
  • 8 ounce(s) of sliced deli style turkey (I like smoked)
  • 8 strips of turkey bacon – cooked
  • 6 ounce(s) of avocado (about 1 medium avocado) – sliced
  • 8 ounce(s) of garden vegetable cream cheese
  1. Spread one ounce of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese on each slice of toasted bread.
  2. To build each sandwich, layer on one slice of bread: 1 crisp iceberg lettuce leaf, 4 thin tomato slices, 2 ounces of sliced deli turkey, 2 strips of cooked turkey bacon, and 1.5 ounces of sliced avocado.
  3. Top with remaining slice of bread.
  4. Repeat to make other sandwiches.
  5. Slice sandwiches in half and enjoy!
