To celebrate, try this twist on the classic.

|Salt||4 large croissants, halved lengthwise|
|¼ c. sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped||6 oz. Brie cheese, coarsely grated|

In 2001, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wasn’t a good candidate for chemo. I took tamoxifen instead and gave my trouble to God—just as Dr. Peale suggested in his book, "Thought Conditioners". Since then I’ve remained cancer free. -Guideposts Magazine reader
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.
