The other day my husband and I were kid free and running from one place to another for church meetings.
We decided to stop for a moment at Panera Bread Company for dinner.
Now I’m a creature of habit.
I always order the same thing and rarely deviate.
However, on this occasion I decided to be bold and try something new.
I ordered the Roasted Turkey & Avocado BLT.
The sandwich was thick and packed full of some of my favorite foods (like avocado and bacon) and each bite was delicious.
As I was sitting there eating this tasty sandwich, my mind was thinking of how to recreate it at home.
Let’s be honest, Panera is expensive.
And for us, it’s not a place we go every day due to the cost of a meal.
So I knew we wouldn’t be back for a while and if I wanted to eat this sandwich again, it would have to be from home.
A few days later I ran to the store, bought all the ingredients and fell in love all over again.
This sandwich has it all and is PERFECT for leftover turkey!
I love when I can re-purpose an ingredient that is meant for one item but can be used in another!
However if you don’t have leftover turkey begging to be used, you can buy carving board turkey or a pack of deli style turkey.
All will produce a tasty sandwich that will melt in your mouth.
One more tip is that you can also use Rotisserie Chicken.
Yes that would technically make this sandwich a CHICKEN & Avocado BLT.
However I always interchange the two with what I have on hand and it always turns out great.
This sandwich is thick, hardy, packed with flavor and one of my new favorite sandwiches!
