  • About This Recipe

    “I made this sandwich up the other day – low calorie, *very low* in fat (1 gram), very rich tasting (really!), and tons of great taste! If you love onions, this is for you!”

    Ingredients

  • 2sliceslight whole wheat bread
  • 3slicesbutterball fat free turkey
  • 1/4 cupshredded fat free mozzarella cheese, the kroger store brand is great
  • 1/2 cupwhite onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cupshredded romaine lettuce
  • 2teaspoonsfat-free Miracle Whip
  • 1teaspoonplain mustard
  • I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spray
  • Directions

  • Place the onions in a bowl and add a couple of teaspoons of water- I also like to add a boullion cube for extra flavor (+5 calories), but be careful with this if you’re watching sodium.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and nuke onions for about 3-5 minutes or until floppy.
  • Meanwhile, spray one side of each slice of bread with the butter spray.
  • Lay one piece spray-side down in a skillet and top with the cheese.
  • You might want to add a squirt of spray over the cheese if the kind you use doesn’t melt well.
  • When the onions are done, take them out and spoon them over the cheese on the bread.
  • Next, add the 3 slices of turkey.
  • Spread the unsprayed side of the other slice of bread with the Miracle Whip (or fat free mayo) and the mustard.
  • Place this slice on top- spray side up!
  • Heat the skillet over medium heat, toasting the sandwich a couple of minutes on either side or until golden brown.
  • When done, remove the sandwich, peel apart, stuff in the lettuce, smoosh back together, and CHOW DOWN!
  • I included calorie and fat counts for every ingredient so that it will be easy to make substitutions and still know the exact nutritional information- I realize that not everyone loves onions as much as I do!
  • Some other good ingredients are roasted bell peppers, mushrooms, tomato, or anything else you love!
  • Reviews

  • “This sandwich is nothing short of incredible!It tastes just like its from a sandwich shop.Very filling and full of taste.Almost as easy to make as a grilled cheese, but it tastes much better!”

  • “Very good turkey sandwich. Made for Soup, Sandwich and Salad tag.”

  • “This was very good! I did add a boullion cube for extra flavor, but next time I think I’ll use half a cube, as I found the flavor of a whole cube to be a bit too intense. Other than that, the only other changes I made were to use regular ingredients (butter, regular bread, and mayo). I also added some tomato slices to the sandwich. Yummy!”

  • “this is amazing, my changes:I used ciabatta bread, no lettuce”
