California Club Sandwich


This is a great sandwich!! My whole family loved it, and it's filling enough to eat on those nights you don't want to do a lot of cooking. I can't take credit for the recipe though, I found it over at Emily Bites (she has some awesome Weight Watcher friendly recipes!)


Here's what you'll need: center cut bacon, low-fat mayonnaise, fresh basil leaves, lime juice, light wheat bread, deli turkey, avocado, lettuce leaves and tomato.


Cook bacon until crispy, set aside to cool on a paper towel to drain some of the grease.


In a small bowl, combine the mayo, basil and lime juice; stir until well combined & set aside.


Slice the tomato & avocado....


...toast the bread.


On one slice of bread spread 1 tablespoon of the mayo mixture, and top with 2 oz turkey and sliced avocado. On the other slice of bread, top with lettuce, tomato and 2 bacon slices.


Flip the lettuce side over onto the turkey side to form your sandwich. Repeat with the 3 remaining sandwiches. Cut in half and serve. ENJOY
