This turkey sandwich is the perfect thing for your Thanksgiving leftovers!
One thing I always have leftovers of is turkey. I don’t usually like to eat it by itself because it gets a little dry the next day.
My turkey sandwich adds cheese and cranberry sauce, which helps make the turkey not as dry.
This is a filling sandwich!! It’s only 4 points for blue and purple, 6 points for green.
One way I lightened up the sandwich was by using Sara Lee 45 calorie multi-grain bread. It is only 1 point per slice with Weight Watchers blue, which is the plan I follow.
I use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray instead of regular butter. I do 3 sprays on one side of each slice of bread. It’s 0 points on all 3 plans.
To lighten up the cheese points I used Sargento ultra thin Swiss cheese.
It’s only 1 point for one slice of cheese. It’s a great way to get the taste of cheese without all of the points.
Sargento also has ultra thin provolone and cheddar cheese.
I also added arugula and cranberry sauce to the sandwich. The cranberry sauce can be high in points, so I only used 1 tablespoon.
Overall it’s an easy sandwich to make and perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers!
Yield: 1 sandwich
Points for 1 sandwich:
Blue – 4 points
Green – 6 points
Purple – 4 points
- 2 slices 1 point bread (I used Sara Lee 45 calorie multi-grain bread)
- 4 oz. cooked turkey breast without skin
- 6 sprays I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray
- 1 slice Sargento ultra thin Swiss cheese
- 1/4 cup arugula
- 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce
Preheat a frying pan over low/medium heat.
Spray one side of each slice of bread 3 times with the butter spray.
Add the cooked turkey to one slice of bread (the side not sprayed with butter). Next add the arugula.
Add the slice of cheese to the other piece of bread (the side not sprayed with butter). Then spread the cranberry sauce on the cheese.
Carefully close the sandwich and add to the frying pan, butter sprayed side down. Cook until the bread is golden brown (about 3 minutes), then flip and cook the other side until golden brown (about 3 more minutes).
