For me, quick and easy meals are a pretty big deal. With the busy life I lead juggling my work, the boys’ schedules and various activities outside of the home I often find I don’t have time to get too fancy in the kitchen. And yet I want something that tastes totally amazing. Yes, you heard me right…I want meals that are worth looking forward to but can be assembled in minutes. I mean really, is that too much to ask? In the past my answer to this question has been a reluctant yes but finally, I’ve discovered that it’s crazy easy to create combinations that taste too good to be true but aren’t, like my all time favorite…Turkey, Avocado and Apple Sandwich.
Now, while I know this sandwich looks amazing, I have to tell you it’s not just any sandwich. It’s a better-for-you sandwich that packs a punch in the flavor department while still boasting natural ingredients. By starting with Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Slow Roasted Turkey Breast, I’ve discovered the ability to give my sandwich the foundation it needs, all with cold cuts that are made with no artificial ingredients and are minimally processed. You see, since incorporating Oscar Mayer Selects Natural cold cuts into my sandwiches, I’ve found out that I really can have the real quality taste of roasted turkey breast that I love minus all the things that I don’t, making it my go to sandwich meat for amazing sandwich creations.
After realizing that Oscar Mayer Selects Natural are one thing that is not too good to be true, I was inspired to get back in the kitchen, kick up the flavors and create a sandwich worthy of this truly amazing meat. To get started, I simply thought of my favorite things when it comes to an amazing turkey sandwich.
What You Will Need:
2 Slices of Whole Grain Bread
One Serving of Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Slow Roasted Turkey Breast
1/4 of a Ripe Avocado
1/4 of an Apple
1/4 Cup of Baby Spinach
Sliced Gouda Cheese
Homemade Avocado Aioli*
How to Make It:
*To start this truly delicious sandwich, you need to mix up your homemade Avocado Aioli. This is one of my favorite condiments to make because it’s so flavorful and really takes the taste of sandwiches to the next level. Simply take one medium avocado, 1/3 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt, 1 teaspoon of cilantro paste, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and a dash of salt and pepper and mix it all together. I like to use a food processor for an extra creamy texture that spreads on my bread perfectly but you can hand mix your avocado aioli as well. Once your avocado aioli is ready, store it in a small container so you can make this delicious sandwich daily.
With all my ingredients laid out and ready, it was time to prepare my sandwich creation. Getting started was as simple as layering flavors onto my piece of bread, starting with my avocado aioli!
Then I added my spinach to my bottom slice of bread and placed one serving of Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Oven Roasted Turkey Breast on top.
Next, I added a layer of thinly sliced apple and a layer of thinly sliced avocado and then finished with my cheese.
After placing my top piece of bread on top and gently pushing it down to keep everything together, all that was left to do was cut my sandwich in half, add a simple spinach and apple side salad and….enjoy!
By using fresh, amazing ingredients, creating my avocado aioli myself and of course having Oscar Mayer Selects Natural as the base for my wholesome sandwich, I’m always assured of a meal that I can feel great about eating and that while delicious is definitely not too good to be true.
Let me tell you, when I make my Turkey, Avocado and Apple Sandwich, I can’t wait for meal time. In fact, it makes enjoying a delicious lunch the highlight of my day. And while all the flavors mixed together are perfection, starting with Oscar Mayer Selects Natural ensures that I have quality cold cuts with no artificial ingredients that taste delicious as the star of my sandwich.
