Turkey Avocado Super Sandwich

Turkey Avocado Sammie

Turkey Avocado Super Sandwich – Clean & Delicious

This sandwich is SO crazy good and I’ll tell you why.

First, you’ve got your toasted Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel bread – so good! Great texture, nice and hearty with just a kiss of sweetness.

Then you’re got your mashed avocado that is not only rich and creamy but is packed with healthy fats too!

Top that with some lean sliced turkey breast which adds yet another texture and a bit of salty goodness and you’ve got a simple super sandwich to die for.

There is just something about the salty-sweet combo with the rich and creamy avocado that is seriously gonna knock your socks off! But don’t try skipping the cinnamon raisin bread because this baby is a major player in our super sandwich (it’s ALL about the salty-sweet thing).

Not to mention your getting some good complex carbs, with some lean protein and healthy fats in this one simple super sandwich! Balance at it’s best.

So there ya have it… a little more proof that you can create nutritious and delicious with very little time and very little effort!

    Perfect timing. You just inspired my lunch! Though now I wish I had some of that cinnamon raisin bread. I only have the plain at home.

    the problem here for me is one more time to find the ingredients..in this case the bread.
    but my favorite sandwich is some whole wheat spelt bread with goat cream cheese that I mix with chopped anchovies, chopped black olives and chopped arugula. spread it on the bread , few slices of tomatoes and I just love it. Really good. I like your idea too, especially because of the sweet and salty thing. great.

    I have never thought of using the raisin bread- I’ll try it. But here’s another little open faced sandwich thingy I do:

    Toast some regular Ezekiel bread.
    spread some goat cheese across it
    slice avocados on top of that
    drizzle all of it with cold pressed olive oil (this is the key)
    and finish off with salt and pepper

    TO DIE FOR! I usually have it alone but its a great to accompany a salad. So rich and delightful. mmmmm

    I must admit, I was skeptical. CINNAMON-RAISIN BREAD with TURKEY?

    But I had it for lunch today, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. It’s SO simple. I think the Ezekiel bread is key, because it’s not artificial-syrupy sweet. It is, like you said, a “kiss” of sweetness — sweet on the outside but savory and creamy on the inside.

    Thank you for opening my eyes to what will soon surely be a work-lunch staple! :)

    How does something so simple look so good?!? I wouldn’t have thought to marry the cinnamon raisin bread with the turkey. But I’ll take your word and not skip it!

    This post, which I found a looong time ago, inspired my favortie breakfast ever… Cinnamon Raisin English muffin with turkey, avocado and apple! Filling and delicious — thanks for the inspiration! I never would have thought of using the cinnamon raisin!

    There’s a restaurant here in town that makes a sandwich similar to this known as a “Turkey, Avocado and cream cheese” sandwich. They include some fresh alfalfa sprouts on the top of the sandwich as well. I’m wanting to make my own healthy version of this sandwich minus the ridiculous thick slice of cream cheese they put in theirs. I’m thinking maybe using greek yogurt as a sandwich spread but not sure how I’d make it taste right. Any ideas?
