With warm Brie, fresh peaches, spicy arugula and tangy honey mustard, these turkey sandwiches are anything but basic. Thanks to Foster Farms for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
Do you remember a few months ago when I ran a half marathon in Napa Valley? I sure do… my knee is still killing me! Napa is one of our favorite places in California to visit. And not just for the wine. Aside from being absolutely gorgeous—rolling vineyards as far as the eye can see—it’s also a foodie’s paradise. You’ll eat well no matter where you go in Napa, but one of our favorite things to do is to enjoy the food and scenery at the same time… by picnicking!
Napa has lots of gourmet sandwich shops that really emphasize high quality, local, fresh and tasty ingredients. There’s no such thing as a basic, boring sandwich at these places. It’s great because you can take a really great meal to-go and enjoy it outdoors in the perfect Cali weather.
If you can’t make it up to Napa (stay tuned—I’ll tell you how you can win a trip in a sec!), how about creating a fun, gourmet sandwich at home?
Foster Farms recently came out with a line of All Natural Sliced Turkey, and to celebrate they are hosting a “Don’t Call Me Basic” Sandwich Contest.

For my anything-but-basic turkey sandwich, I start with a freshly baked baguette. French bread is just the best. Then I spread on a little honey mustard. Make sure it’s a good, spicy one. If you don’t have any honey mustard, you can make your own. Just mix one part spicy mustard (like Dijon) with one part honey. After you’ve slathered your bread, you can top it with some Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey and a couple slices of Brie cheese. Then warm it all up in the oven or toaster oven until it’s nice and warm and melted.
Once the cheese is warm, remove the sandwiches from the oven and add some slices of juicy, ripe peach. Then top with arugula and sandwich everything together.
How good does that look? There is nothing like Brie and fresh fruit together, and they both complement the turkey really well. The mustard and arugula give the sandwich just a little bit of a bite and even out the sweetness. This sandwich really reminded me of something I would get at one of the shops in Napa, and it was so easy to make at home. Especially since we have the most amazing summer peaches right now!
Turkey doesn’t have to be boring. With just a little creativity and some yummy, unique ingredients, you can really make lunchtime special!
