1. Mix mayonnaise, mustard, garlic and rosemary. Add salt to taste. Set aside for up to 30 minutes at room temperature or up to a day refrigerated.
2. Spread 2 tablespoons mixture on bottom half of croissants. Layer on tomatoes, Brie, Swiss cheese and turkey. Add croissant tops.
3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Cook sandwiches 2 to 3 minutes, covered, until golden brown. (Because of their high butter content, croissants can burn easily. Watch carefully.) Turn over, pressing each with a spatula to compress. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until undersides are golden brown. Turn once more, pressing again; cook for 1 minute.
4. Let cool 5 minutes.
