HG's Grilly Girl Cheesy Turkey & Bacon 'Wich

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Grill Me
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...

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),

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

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!

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!
