0 Total Time

Ingredients

  • 50 Croissants, Sliced in Half
  • 2 1/2 Cups Honey Mustard
  • 6 1/4 lbs Shady Brook Farms® Sliced Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
  • 50 Tomato Slices, Cut in Half (2 per sandwich)
  • 50 Slices American Cheese
  • 5 Cups Mayonnaise

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  2. Spray 2 full-size sheet pans with butter-flavored pan release. Lay 12 slices of bread on each prepared pan.
  3. Spread ½ Tbsp of honey mustard on each slice of croissant. Assemble each sandwich with 1 piece of thick-sliced turkey, 2 slices of tomato, and 1 slice American cheese (portion cheese with a 2 oz spoodle).
  4. Spread the remaining croissant slices with 1 Tbsp mayonnaise each, place croissant slices (mayonnaise-side-down) on top of the sandwiches.
  5. Spray tops of sandwiches with butter-flavored pan release.
  6. Place one to two sheet pans on top of the sandwiches to weigh them down and facilitate browning, and place in the preheated 375˚F oven.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until croissants are toasted and cheese is melted.
  8. Transfer sandwiches to 2-inch full-size steamtable pans for service. Shingle in pan for best appearance.
  9. Chef Tip: To mimic panini press action, compress batch of sandwiches (approx. 20) between 2 sheet trays and parchment, then place 6 sheet trays on top to weigh them down (Method also works great for quesadillas!)
