When I saw the commercial on TV and they said their sandwich had turkey, avocado, and cream cheese on it I just had to go try it. It was good, but tasted a little bland to us.

I told Lee I would have to come up with my own version of this sandwich that had a little more flavor. I decided to put the same herbs and spices that you put in Ranch Dressing into the cream cheese.

So, all of the spices for Ranch Dressing are in there, but there is no buttermilk. I contemplated about how to get buttermilk flavor in there and didn’t like any of the options, so I left it out.

The cream cheese smelled just like Ranch Dressing while I was mixing the herbs and spices into it. And we were happy that the sandwich wasn’t bland.

I love the avocados on this Grilled Turkey Avocado Ranch Cream Cheese Sandwich! My grandparents had a huge avocado tree in their backyard, so I have been eating them as long as I can remember. They are a superfood!

The sandwich in the pictures has 1/4 of the package of turkey on it. I used Great Value sourdough bread and the slices are a little wider than a normal loaf of bread. So if you used regular sized bread there would be a little more meat on it than this.
