Homemade BLT Turkey Sandwich


  • Slices of homemade bread loaf
  • Sliced turkey breast
  • Cooked bacon strips
  • Fresh lettuce leaves
  • Sliced ripe tomatoes
  • Avocado slices
  • Sliced cheese of your choice
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Toast the Bread: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Slice the homemade bread loaf into thick slices. Place the bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and lightly brush them with melted butter or olive oil. Toast in the preheated oven for 5-8 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and crispy.
  2. Prepare the Sandwich Ingredients: While the bread is toasting, gather your sandwich ingredients. Slice the turkey breast, cook the bacon until crispy, wash and dry the lettuce leaves and tomatoes, and slice the avocado.
  3. Assemble the Sandwich: On one slice of toasted bread, spread a generous layer of mayonnaise. On another slice, spread a layer of Dijon mustard. Layer the sandwich ingredients on the slice with mayonnaise: start with fresh lettuce leaves, followed by sliced cheese, tomatoes, avocado slices, cooked bacon strips, and sliced turkey breast. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Top with the Other Slice: Place the slice of bread with Dijon mustard on top of the layered ingredients to form the sandwich.
  5. Press and Slice: Gently press down on the sandwich to ensure all the ingredients are compacted together. Use a sharp knife to slice the sandwich diagonally into halves or quarters.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Optionally, garnish the plate with additional lettuce leaves, tomato slices, or avocado slices for presentation. Serve the sandwich halves or quarters on a decorative plate.
  7. Optional Additions: For extra flavor and gourmet appeal, consider adding ingredients like caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, arugula, or a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
