Ham “Club” Sandwiches

This here is a sandwich I find I sometimes tend to gravitate towards whenever BLT’s are on the menu.  I like protein to pack a punch in my meals and sometimes just 6 slices of ultra-thin turkey bacon isn’t going to do the trick.  I realize club sandwiches typically come with 3 slices of bread, but there is no need for that especially since, if I am really hungry, two sandwiches are more than sustainable.
I purchase the Butterball Ultra-Thin Turkey Bacon which you can have 3 slices of bacon for 1 points plus value.  Usually I have 6 slices of bacon for 2 points plus values, which in my opinion is the best “bang for your buck” turkey bacon on the market.
Each sandwich is 4 points plus values each, two being 8 points plus values.  I do usually add 1 tablespoon of Hellmann’s light mayonnaise into the mix (adding half of it onto each sandwich) making the two sandwiches 9 points plus.  Or if you truly only wanted one you could use one teaspoon of the light mayo and still keep it 4 points plus.
Here’s what I use to assemble my 2 sandwiches (if you only want one sandwich, cut each amount listed in half):
4 slices Light Italian bread, toasted
4 ounces shaved Krakus Polish Imported Ham
6 slices Butterball Ultra-Thin turkey bacon
1 tablespoon Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise
Tomato, sliced
Onion, sliced
These are a home run. They’re delicious, filling and you feel like you’re having something you’d order at a dinner … but in the comfort of your own home.

Open Faced Breakfast Sandwich

I decided to make something different for breakfast, so I opted to go for an open faced breakfast sandwich.  You know, just twisting up the usual bacon and eggs.  Since I used egg substitute to scramble up, it makes quite a good amount of eggs, which is more than enough to place onto two English muffin rounds. It was yummy and filling.  Plus, since I’m a volume eater, seeing “more” on the plate subconsciously made me more satisfied.
The greatest part is that the whole plate was only 4 points plus.  I did top my eggs with sriracha and some reduced sugar ketchup.  Here’s what I used:
½ cup egg substitute
1 light English muffin (I used my local store brand they’re 2 points plus)
3 slices Butterball Ultra Thin turkey bacon

Broccoli, Tomato & Onion Omelet, Turkey Bacon & Toast

Talk about a breakfast of champions!  If this isn’t it, I don’t know what is.  I was in the mood for an omelet so I decided to make myself one with some liquid egg substitute.  Since I didn’t want a plain jane omelet I went through the fridge and took out a few items I had cut up for different meals and combined them into this delicious creation.
I poured ½ cup liquid egg substitute into the bottom of a heated nonstick pan and seasoned with some Mrs. Dash spicy flavoring, garlic powder and oregano.  I then added in some chopped up tomatoes, broccoli and red onion (which I zapped in the microwave for a few seconds to soften).  I let it cook up on medium heat until cooked through enough to flip.  I then squeezed it a bit (I like my eggs almost “well done”) so I cooked it for a bit on each side until it was – essentially “dead”.
I paired it with 3 slices of Butterball Ultra Thin & Crispy turkey bacon and 2 slices of light wheat bread which I toasted.  I topped my omelet with 2 tablespoons fat free mozzarella, sriracha and reduced sugar ketchup.  So delicious and incredibly filling!
Weight Watchers points plus wise this ONLY cost me 4 points plus.  Worth every point.
