This lighter version of a club sandwich has the taste of the original but nearly 160 fewer calories and 21 fewer grams of fat.


2 slices center-cut bacon, cut in half

3 slices light wheat bread

1 tablespoon light mayonnaise

1 romaine lettuce leaf

4 slices Roma tomato

Salt and pepper to taste

5 ounces extra-lean roasted turkey, sliced thin


1. Place skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook till crisp, about five minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

2. Just before bacon is cooked, toast bread until lightly toasted on both sides. Place side by side on a clean work surface.

3. Spread 1½ teaspoons mayonnaise on first and third slices of bread. Place lettuce then tomato on first slice. Season with salt and pepper. Top evenly with half of the turkey. Top that with bare slice of bread. Add remaining turkey, followed by bacon. Place remaining slice of bread atop sandwich.

4. Secure sandwich layers by piercing them through top bread slice with four toothpicks placed in a diamond shape so they go through layers. Cut sandwich diagonally into four triangles (a toothpick should secure each quarter).
