Turkey Bacon Ranch Melts are your new favorite sandwich!! Melty cheese, crispy bacon, turkey and ranch all warm and tucked into a buttery croissant.
Hey guys!! I know you all are still soaking up summer and back to school is the last thing on your mind, but it’s coming. You can smell the sharpened pencils and crayons from the Back to School section you swear wasn’t at your Walmart yesterday. Your inbox is now filling up with daily bookbag sales, 50% off uniforms and lunchboxes waiting to be monogrammed with your kid’s name. You may hate it, but I love Back to School time! Even before I had kids, I just loved it, maybe because it signals the beginning of my favorite season, fall.
Whether you love it or hate it, it will be here before you know it.
Last year Dean would only take Tyson® Fun Nuggets to school for lunch and that was fine with me. It made my mornings so easy! I just popped a few in the toaster oven and in just a few minutes they were ready to go in his bento box and he was off to school.
Now that Sam is a toddler he also is in love with these dino shaped nuggets so I always keep them on hand. They make a perfect quick lunch or a super-fast dinner for those nights when you just can’t think about cooking.
This year Dean has started to like sandwiches!!! I was thrilled! We worked together putting together some of his favorite ingredients to make the perfect sandwich!! That is how these Turkey Bacon Ranch Melts were born!
Buttery croissants are filled with melty cheddar, crispy bacon, creamy ranch and his all-time favorite Hillshire Farm® Ultra Thin Honey Roasted Turkey lunchmeat! We always keep lots of Hillshire Farm meat on hand because it is our favorite! We love that it is made with no artificial preservatives, no added nitrates and no artificial flavors! Plus it is delicious and comes in so many amazing flavors, you’ll never run out great varieties!
My favorite thing about these melts is I can make a bunch ahead of time and keep them in the fridge or the freezer and then just warm one up in the morning to throw in Dean’s lunchbox or even for the perfect after school snack while doing homework and let me tell you, one of these sandwiches with some mac & cheese or little salad and you have one super-fast dinner for those ultra-busy nights when you just can’t even think about cooking!
Can I use ham or chicken lunchmeat?
Of course!! Hillshire Farm makes so many delicious varieties of lunchmeat! Try these Turkey Bacon Ranch Melts with their chicken or ham lunchmeats instead!
These are freezable?!?
Yup!! Just wrap these babies in foil and then pop them in a freezer gallon bag and you are good to go!! These also last a few days in the fridge wrapped up the same way!
Can I use any cheese?
You sure can!! Use up whatever you have in the fridge! Got Swiss? Throw it on there! Some leftover pepperjack? You bet!
