2 slices light bread
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 oz. (about 2 slices) thickly sliced reduced-sodium skinless turkey breast
1/2 oz. (about 1 slice) thickly sliced 97% - 98% fat-free ham
1 slice reduced-fat Swiss cheese
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
Dash black pepper
1 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
Optional toppings: powdered sugar, sugar-free or low-sugar fruit preserves

Lay one slice of bread flat and spread with mustard. Evenly top with half of the turkey, followed by the ham, cheese, remaining turkey, and remaining slice of bread. Slice sandwich in half diagonally.

In a wide bowl, stir egg substitute with pepper.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom.

Evenly coat sandwich halves with the egg mixture and place in the skillet. Cook until outsides are toasty and the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully. Yum!
