People go crazy over these super easy to make turkey craisin sandwiches. They are sure to be a hit at your next party or gathering.
When I find something delicious, I love to try to copy the recipe. I had a sandwich similar to these at an event I attended and when I opened my sandwich up, I realized how simple the ingredients were. These sandwiches only have 3 ingredients in the spread- cream cheese, craisins, and green onions. Even though this sounds really simple, these three ingredients work together to add tons of flavor. I have been to many a baby or bridal shower where chicken salad croissant sandwiches were served and these are a great alternative and always a crowd pleaser. (And I am not saying anything is wrong with chicken salad croissants, I love them! It’s just nice to have something different.)
I served these sandwiches last night at my dad’s baptism. He was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My mom is a convert and raised my brothers and I in the church.We have been waiting for this day for 33 years. It was such a happy and joyful occasion with many friends and family. You can learn more about what we believe here-mormon.org.
I wanted to make sure the food side of the baptism was perfect so I was in charge of the refreshments. I had so many people request the sandwich recipe and come back for seconds or thirds. I made a huge batch of about 72 sandwiches, and they were so fast and easy to put together. I bought the cream cheese, turkey and craisins in bulk at Costco to make the sandwiches. If you aren’t a fan of cream cheese, I would still encourage you to give this recipe a try. I don’t think a lot of people knew it was cream cheese in the sandwich. It really takes on the different flavors of the ingredients. The sweetness of the craisins and the savoriness of the green onions work so well together on a yummy, buttery croissant.
Turkey Craisin Croissant Sandwiches
8 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup craisins
3 green onions chopped (green part only)
12 thick slices honey roasted turkey (I like the Costco Kirkland brand)
In a mixing bowl mix together the craisins, cream cheese and chopped green onions. Slice croissants in half. Spread cream cheese mixture generously on both sides of croissant and top with 2 slices of turkey. Cut croissant into 3 equal parts. May be made and refrigerated up to one day before.
Optional- I also mixed in some feta cheese in a few of the sandwiches and I loved the tanginess it added. You can add about 1/3 cup feta cheese to the cream cheese mixture if desired.
