Turkey Sandwich with Brie

This Turkey Sandwich with Brie is our version of one of my favorite sandwiches from a popular Boise restaurant, The Bleubird. The chic and popular sandwich shop in downtown Boise boasts all kinds of unique flavors and once I tried this turkey sandwich I fell in love. It may quite possibly be my favorite sandwich ever, and I don’t say that lightly. If you are ever in the Boise area, stop in and eat at the Bleubird. For as small as Boise is (comparatively speaking), we have tons of amazing restaurants, Bleubird definitely being one of them (seriously, try their Reuben, too.. oh my gosh). However, if a trip to the Treasure Valley isn’t in the cards, make this delicious sandwich yourself, because they’re so good!

Tips for this Unique Turkey Sandwich

  • Get a good bread. I used French bread for this picture above, but you could use Ciabatta, Focaccia, or any kind of bread that looks delicious to you.
  • This recipe calls for fig butter, and you can find it at Trader Joe’s for just a couple of dollars. Fig butter really brings life to the sandwich; don’t leave it out! If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your area, you can make your own by mixing fig preserves with softened butter or just spread a layer of frig preserves on the bread. So yummy!
  • Brie cheese is easy to find at your local grocery store. It can get a little sticky when spreading on the sandwich; you can just use your fingers to get an even layer.
  • Layer thinly sliced Granny Smith apple on the sandwich. The tartness of the apple complements the creaminess of the cheese and just makes this sandwich so good. You won’t use the entire apple, so slice up and serve the remaining apples on the side.

What to Serve with this Sandwich with Brie

At the Bleubird, I always get their blue cheese potato salad as a side dish (so good), but when I make it at home I serve it with our Gorgonzola Bacon Potato Salad, which I love just as much. Or try some of these delicious side dishes:

  • Slice the bread making a top and bottom half. On the bottom half of the bread, generously spread on the fig butter (as if you were making a PB&J).
  • Layer on the turkey, Brie (this can get tricky, just spread it on as best you can), greens, and apple (you probably won’t use all the apple– you just want a single layer. Serve the rest on the side).
  • On the “top” half of the bread, spread on the Dijon mustard and place on top of the sandwich.
  • That’s it! Seriously, best sandwich ever.
  • (makes 1 sandwich)

  1. Oh love this so much, I am looking for simple easy health sandwiches as I am always making for charity functions. These are delicious too

  2. How great to still be getting gifts from the gadren. Mine burned up in July. My fig tree, had but one leaf left on it, but after rains, now is covered, though I didn’t get any figs this year. Maybe next year will be better.

  3. I had missed this when you first posted it. I’m SO glad I saw this–the turkey sandwich at Bleubird is my all-time favorite sandwich!! It is amazing! Thanks for the tip about the fig butter. The first time I had the sandwich, someone brought it to me so I hadn’t ordered it. I had to google their menu to figure out everything that was on that sandwich. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Yea! Trader Joe’s has the nice thick turkey slices and the figs for sale. I’m on my way, if I don’t slip on my drool first. This looks so good.

  5. Love turkey sandies……let me introduce you to another way….
    Honey turkey thinly sliced, french brie with the mushrooms
    running through it…..French crossiants, large size. Red
    pepper jelly (homemade) and finally if so desired, cream cheese
    lightly flavored with orange honey. I normally do not share
    my ‘lab’ results, yes my lab is my kitchen, even in looks. Finally,
    for the greens i use arugala, nice sweet peppery flavors.
    enjoy πŸ™‚
