Combine ingredients in a pot and simmer for 10 minutes on low until spinach is softened and cheese is melted into the cream.
In a medium skillet melt 1/2t of butter and add in slices of turkey breasts on medium heat. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until a nice brown char is created.
Add pre-cooked spinach-artichoke dip on top of cooked turkey while still heating in the skillet and top with swiss cheese and cover skillet until cheese melts.
Use remainder of butter to toast sliced croissant roll.
Plate the sandwich but having the bottom slice of the croissant roll, then add the turkey that has the melted spinach-artichoke dip and swiss cheese on top then top with the toasted top croissant slice. Pair with chips, fries, salad, or fresh fruit. Enjoy!
