Overstuffed Turkey Club

Overstuffed Turkey Club

I’m not sure this is really a recipe that needs to be posted but then again it is easy to make an ordinary sandwich turn into a calorie bomb that sits heavy in your belly all day.  This sandwich is loaded with lots of veggies and the giardiniera mix (a mix of pickled veggies found by the olive section or Italian section) adds a punch of flavor.

  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄3 cup sliced tomato (approx. 1 medium)
  • 1⁄3 cup sliced red onion (approx. ½ medium)
  • 2 Tbsp. sliced dill pickles
  • 6 slices low-sodium, nitrite-free, deli-sliced turkey breast (approx. 4 oz.)

Directions:

  1. Spread one slice of bread with  giardiniera mix and the other with mustard.

  3. Top first slice of bread with tomato, onion, pickles, turkey, turkey bacon, lettuce, and second slice of bread.
