4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich and 2 tablespoons sauce)
1/4 cup red currant jelly
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon water
2/3 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (1-ounce) slices cooked turkey breast
4 (1-ounce) slices cooked ham
4 (1-ounce) slices 50%-less-fat Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese
8 (1-ounce) slices white bread
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
How to Make It
To prepare sauce, combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring well with a whisk. Cook until jelly melts.
To prepare sandwiches, combine egg substitute, milk, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
Place one slice each of the turkey, ham, and cheese on each of 4 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices. Dip both sides of each sandwich into the egg substitute mixture. Place sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 3 minutes on each side or until sandwiches are golden.
Sprinkle sandwiches with powdered sugar. Serve sandwiches with sauce.
I made this sandwich for my husband and I for dinner one night. It was really simple to make, and it was absolutely delicious! My husband enjoyed getting involved in making it, and we both wished there was more once we were done eating. This will forever be a staple in my recipe box.
I've tried a few "lighter" versions of this sandwich and I like this one the best. I enjoyed the sauce more but I also used cherry preserves instead of red current since I had it on hand. I also liked dipping the whole sandwich in egg mix then cooking. Others I have tried had you make french toast first which is an extra cooking step and given this recipie- not necessary. I also bumped up the meat and cheese which I am aware defeats the low-cal :)
