Ingredients:

  • 3 (1 1/2 lb.) round flat sourdough bread loaves
  • 2 ripe, fresh avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and divided
  • 3 Tbsp. salsa
  • 3 (6 in. x 1 1/2 in.) roasted red pepper strips
  • 1 lb. smoked turkey, thinly sliced
  • 3 red onion slices, thinly sliced, halved and separated into rings
  • 3 (1 oz.) Pepper Jack cheese slices
  • 2 Romaine lettuce leaves

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 4-inch circle out of the top of the bread and tear out the inside of the bread in the bottom section to make a shell.
  2. Mash one avocado and mix with salsa and spread over the bottom of the bread.
  3. Layer pepper strips, onions, half the turkey, and then the cheese inside the bread. Slice the remaining avocado and place on top of the cheese.
  4. Top with lettuce and remaining turkey.
  5. Replace the bread top and press down firmly to compress ingredients.
  6. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut into wedges just before serving.

Notes & Tips:

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
Pressing the avocado mixture inside the roll keeps the air out, so these sandwiches can be made several hours in advance of serving.
