Grilled Turkey and Ham Sandwiches

 

Update sandwich night with a hearty grilled stacker loaded with meat, veggies, and a Dijon spread.

 

Yield: 4 sandwiches (serving size: 1 sandwich)

 

Ingredients:

•  1 tablespoon light mayonnaise

•  1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

•  8 (1-ounce) slices country white bread

•  4 (1-ounce) slices deli, lower-salt turkey breast

•  4 (1/2-ounce) slices deli, lower-salt ham

•  4 (1/2-ounce) slices reduced-fat cheddar cheese

•  8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato

•  Cooking spray

 

Preparation:

1.  Combine mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl. Spread about 1 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture over 1 side of each of 4 bread slices. Top each slice with 1 turkey slice, 1 ham slice, 1 cheese slice, and 2 tomato slices. Top with remaining bread slices.

2.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sandwiches to pan; cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn sandwiches over; cook 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

 

Note:

Enjoy with carrot sticks and tomato soup. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic to pan, and sauté 1 minute. Add 2 (14.5-ounce) cans undrained diced tomatoes; 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth; 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar; and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
