BLTA Sandwich

A month or two ago the hubby took me out for dinner to a local restaurant. I saw that they had a new item on the menu - a BLTA Croissant (bacon, lettuce, turkey and avocado). It was SOOOOOO good and I would like to make it here at home some night, which is why I'm posting it.

Ingredients (per sandwich)
  • Croissant (I have a recipe for crescent rolls that I use to make my own croissants, I just shape them differently)
  • 1 tablespoon Mayo or Miracle Whip
  • 2-3 leaves of lettuce - I would go with a nice bibb, butter/boston, or other delicate lettuce 
  • 1-2 thin tomato slices 
  • 3-4 slices deli turkey (thinly sliced or shaved)
  • 1 slice provolone
  • 2 slices bacon - I would use turkey bacon to cut down on the fat content
  • 2 avocado slices - make sure you get a ripe one and slice it thinly, about 1/4"-1/2" thick
  1. Spread Mayo/Miracle Whip on both sides of the croissant. Layer lettuce, tomato, turkey, provolone, bacon, and avocado. 
  2. Enjoy!

  1. This is my favorite thing to eat there! I'm so glad you wrote up a recipe, we are making these today for Sunday dinner. I'll have to try it with homemade croissants next time.
