This Turkey and Sprouts on Ciabatta is the perfect summer sandwich. I keep my house pretty warm. Because it is already so warm, I rarely turn on my oven in the summer. Sandwiches and salads are kings in our house.
Of sandwiches are your thing, let me suggest a few others I love. My hearty meatball subs are one of my very favorite sandwiches! What about an Italian pressed sandwich? They are so simple to make ahead of time. Another favorite sandwich is this pork tenderloin banh mi.
What Makes This Sandwich So Good?
This sandwich has so many of my favorite things! It has delicious bread, pepper turkey, avocados, red onions, tomatoes, and sprouts. Spread the sandwich with sriracha mayo and it is complete.
It is a really easy sandwich to make. You can throw these sandwiches together in minutes, so stress.
These are a sandwich that just about anyone can love. You can adjust the ingredients as you like, in case there are other preferences.
- Ciabatta- or other bread of choice. Ciabatta is always a favorite of mine, but you might like another?
- Deli turkey- Boar's Head pepper turkey is a personal favorite, but you can also use any other sliced deli meat you might like.
- Avocado- Is a sandwich without an avocado? I don't think so.
- Red onions- some people have strong feelings about red onion, if you are one of them, leave them out.
- Tomatoes- They add just the right texture and flavor.
- Sprouts- I used alfalfa for mine, but there are also other great sprouts out there.
- Mayonnaise- You only need 2 ingredients for the sriracha mayo, and mayo is one of them.
- Sriracha sauce- this is a spicy sauce that goes perfectly with sandwich.
How To Make
I like to make the sriracha mayo first. To make this, add the mayonnaise and sriracha sauce to a small bowl. Mix well. That is all it takes.
Next, spread a little mayo on the top and bottom of the ciabatta. When it is spread, start layering the ingredients.
Once the sandwich is filled as you like, it is done! So simple and so delicious!
You won't need many notes for this sandwich as it is so simple to throw together.
I would certainly recommend these be made and eaten within 6-8 hours. The bread will get a little soggy and the avocadoes will start to brown. The sprouts will also get soggy too.
Make sure if you are not eating this right away that you refrigerate the sandwich. With the turkey and sriracha mayo in the sandwich, they need to stay chilled.
- ½ cup mayo of choice
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce we actually prefer a 1:1 ration with the mayo. If you are a little unsure of how hot you can handle, the 2 tablespoons is a great place to start.
- pinch salt
- pinch ground black pepper
- Mix all ingredients. Taste. Adjust as needed. This can be made and stored for up to 5 days in an air tight container in the fridge. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
