We LOVE hot gooey sandwiches, but the ones sold at fast-food chains are pretty much always bad news. DIY, people! What's easier to make than a sandwich? Whip up our Grilly Girl Cheesy Turkey & Bacon 'Wich ASAP...
Ingredients: 1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon 1/2 tbsp. fat-free mayonnaise 1/2 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped 1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning 2 slices light bread 2 oz. reduced-sodium lean turkey breast slices 1 slice fat-free cheddar cheese 1 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown), divided
Directions: Cook bacon according to package instructions, either in the microwave or in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. Once cool enough to handle, break or cut bacon in half and set aside.
To make the sauce, combine mayo, sun-dried tomatoes, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl. Mix well. Spread sauce on one slice of bread and top with bacon, turkey, and cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top, and press gently to seal. Spread 1/2 tsp. butter on the upward-facing slice of bread.
With the buttered side down, place sandwich in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. Then spread remaining 1/2 tsp. butter on the upward-facing bread slice. Bring the skillet to medium-high heat on the stove. Cook for 2 minutes. Gently flip and cook for 1 additional minute, or until both sides are hot and toasty. Slice in half or bite right in!
HG Sodium Tip: Make this with thinly sliced, no-salt-added lean turkey breast, and your sandwich will clock in with about 700mg sodium.
Jack in the Box's Turkey, Bacon & Cheddar Grilled Sandwich
Hitting Below the Melt
Some fast-food items can sucker you in just because they sound so simple and innocent. For example, Jack in the Box's Turkey, Bacon & Cheddar Grilled Sandwich. A deli-style turkey sandwich from a burger joint? That TOTALLY sounds like a fine choice, doesn't it? Well, this seemingly basic sandwich has MORE calories than some of Jack's cheeseburgers and as much fat as a round of his Mini Sirloin Burgers. The bread alone has more than 300 calories and SEVEN grams of fat! Luckily, this one was easy to make over. The result? A super-tasty cheesy treat with WAY fewer calories and grams of fat than Jack's greasy version. Drive-thru? No thank you!
