Looking for a delectable and unique sandwich recipe to tantalize your taste buds? Look no further! This Saskatoon Berry Turkey Croissant Sandwich is a delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors, featuring the rich taste of Saskatoon berries. The star of the show, the Saskatoon berry jam, adds a touch of local charm and natural sweetness to the tender slices of turkey, making this sandwich a perfect treat for any occasion.
I came up with this recipe after coming back from Europe where I had a croissant with almost every meal. Pictured below is a croissant sandwich I had in a cafe along Kungstradgarden, a park in central Stockholm. When I am away competing for track, most of my sightseeing involves finding places to eat and hang out because I can’t overdo it before a race. I added a local spin on this croissant sandwich adding some of my favorite flavours including Saskatoon berries and fresh basil.
Tips for buying ingredients:
- Croissants: I like buying croissants fresh from local bakeries such as Earth Bound Bakery in Saskatoon. I like shopping local when I can and I often find grocery store croissants are on the dry side.
- Saskatoon Berry Jam: I like to use Parenteau’s Gourmet Foods Saskatoon Berry Jam from Saskmade Marketplace. Parenteau’s Gourmet Foods is an Aboriginal, privately-owned Saskatchewan company.
- Oven Roasted Turkey Breast: I like Lilydale oven roasted turkey breast from costco as the slices are nice and thick and free of nitrates.

- Slice a croissant in half lengthwise. Spead the bottom half of the croissant with desired amount of Saskatoon berry jam.
- Add 2-3 slices of turkey, crumbled goat cheese, arugula, and fresh basil on top of the jam.
- Place the top half of the croissant on top of the toppings to create a croissant sandwich.
- I didn’t add amounts of toppings, because you can add as little or as much of each ingredient depending on how you like your sandwich!
