This sandwich was so easy to make. I modified it to reduce the calorie count somewhat, but it was just as wonderful. My version was made with Arnolds sandwich rounds (100 calories) and instead of the olive oil, I used 1/2 Tblsp of I can't believe it's not Butter Light on the outside of the bread before grilling it. 1 oz of Brie, 1/2 slice of grilled turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato and a Vidalia onion slice. I used grey poupon course mustard in my husbands sandwich and none in mine since I don't care for that. I did use salt and pepper on the tomatoes which also added to the flavor of the sandwich. He loved the mustard. I loved the sandwich without. We paired this with a crunch slaw recipe that I make from Cooking Light magazine and it made a wonderful lunch.
