Recently, I saw my friend Jamie share a recipe for a sandwich she had at the Costco “food court” (that’s what I call it). Shortly after that, my hubby and oldest son had been at Costco and grabbed some lunch while they were there. They were raving about a new sandwich they tried at the “food court” at Costco. It just happened to be this turkey and provolone sandwich. I decided I needed to do some research and go try one for myself. The things I have to do for you, my wonderful readers, right?
I went to Costco and gave the sandwich a try. It was delicious! I then went shopping at Costco for the ingredients to recreate the sandwich at home. Now I used the ingredients from Costco, but you can get similar ingredients from your regular grocery store to make it. If you get the ingredients from Costco, you will have enough turkey and rolls to make this recipe twice. Then you will have extra pesto and provolone to use for other dishes.
My family loved these sandwiches and gobbled them up. However, some members had their sandwich made minus the onion and tomato. Silly picky eaters that live at my house! This was also a great quick dinner to prepare, basically ready in 15-20 minutes.
- ½ cup prepared pesto (I used the Kirkland Pesto)
- ¼ cup light mayonnaise
- 5 Costco Torta rolls (or ciabatta rolls), sliced in half
- 1 pound sliced cooked turkey breast (I used the Columbus Herbed Roasted Turkey Breast from Costco)
- 10 thin slices of tomato
- ½ red onion, cut into thin slices
- 5 slices of provolone cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the pesto and mayo until well blended.
- Place the torta rolls halves, cut side up on a large baking sheet.
- Spread a spoonful of the pesto mixture on the cut side of each of the torta roll halves.
- Place two slices of the turkey on the bottom halves of the rolls.
- On the top half of the rolls, place two tomato slices on each followed by a few red onion rings. Then top with a slice or provolone.
- Place in the oven on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.
- Then place on broil and broil for a just a bit to get the cheese bubbly and a little brown.
- Put each of the turkey halves with the veggie halves and enjoy.
