For the event I just attended at Oscar Mayer we each had to come up with a sandwich recipe which we then were filmed professionally making 🙂
I wanted to come up with something a little gourmet, but still inexpensive. So here is my frugal offering:
Canned Pears (lite preferably)
Turkey Luncheon Meat
Bread of choice (a whole wheat is nice)
Slice canned pears thinly.
Layer sandwich ingredients together: Bread, Lettuce, pear, turkey, swiss, bread.
The pear provides a nice moist layer, cuts down the fat content (no Mayo!), increases the fiber and gives a little zip of sweetness.
If you like you can leave off the swiss, but I like the contrast of the strong cheese flavor with the sweet pear.
You can also substitute in Chicken or Ham for the Turkey.
