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
Cooking spray
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar


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.
