Summertime is all about sandwiches over here. I truly love a good sandwich which is why I’m excited to share this super easy and flavorful Summer Turkey Croissant sandwich with you all.

Years ago, when I first visited Trader Joe’s, I had the pleasure of trying a sandwich they had on display. If my memory serves me right, they were made with a delectable combination of cream cheese, tomato, basil, and either pastrami or roast beef, all nestled between two buttery croissants. It was such a delicious sandwich that it sparked my love for cream cheese on sandwiches, croissants and the aromatic flavor of basil. I made this sandwich for weeks because it was simply that good.

Now, I present to you my own take on this memorable creation, with a twist—I’ve decided to incorporate cracked Peppermill smoked turkey into the mix. Trust me, this revamped version of the sandwich is bound to be just as good as the original. But as always feel free to add your own customizations to this delicious recipe.

What kind of meat?

I had every intention of using pastrami for this sandwich because that’s what I think the original had on it. But when I went to my local Sprouts, the saleswoman highly recommended the cracked Peppermill smoked turkey. She even gave me a test and let’s just say, it was really good and I figured it would go great with this sandwich.
