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!
