I remember the first time I ordered a turkey club. I was about 10 years old and I felt very grown up ordering an "adult" sandwich. It quickly became my favorite, how could I not like it?! Toasted bread with tart tomatoes, crisp lettuce, salty bacon and creamy avocado with a generous stack of turkey. It had all my favorite ingredients and is still a sandwich I order anytime I see it on the menu.
Unfortunately, my beloved sandwich has a few flaws! It is traditionally made with white bread, bacon and mayo which are all ingredients that skyrocket the calories! Not wanting to give up my favorite sandwich, I recently made a lighter version that I think tastes just as good!
Make this sandwich for your lunches next week and pair it with carrots and an apple to make it a complete meal!
