Goat Cheese, Avocado and Smoked Turkey Sandwich on Sourdough Bread

Total Time:
15 min
15 min

6 servings

  • 1 12 ounce tomato, finely minced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced scallion
  • 2 heaping tablespoons finely minced cilantro
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 slices nut bread, each about 1/3" thick, 3" wide, 6" long (this is easiest to achieve if you cut the bread from a round loaf)
  • 12 ounces goat cheese
  • 12 thin slices of smoked turkey breast, about 1/2 pound
  • 2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted, and cut into thin slices
  • Mix together the tomato, the scallion and the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Spread each of the 12 sourdough slices with one ounce of goat cheese. Top six of the slices with a slice of smoked turkey. Top each turkey slice with 1/6 of the tomato mixture, spread evenly. Top that with a thin layer of avocado slices, seasoned with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining slices of turkey and cover with the remaining 6 slices of bread (which have been spread with goat cheese). Cut each sandwich in half and serve immediately.

  • As a picnic item, or as a lunch: One sandwich per person is ideal. If it's convenient to serve soup, a mug of Creamy Lentil Soup with Ancho Chiles would be a great accompaniment.

  • As a buffet item: You could cut these sandwiches in quarters, place them on lettuce-lined platters, and serve small bites to 24 people.
