One of the best sandwiches I have ever had, honestly! These little Italian delights are incredible. When you start looking at the ingredient list and stumble upon "egg", you might find this a little strange. Egg crepes are not commonly found on a traditional clud sandwich. But this is not your average club. This one has Giada's Italian flare. Give this version a try with ALL the ingredients, because when it ALL comes together, it works. The mix of flavors and textures in these Mini Italian Club Sandwiches are something that you don't want to miss. I promise, you will love it!
MINI ITALIAN CLUB SANDWICHES
Makes 6 Servings
4 Arnold Italian flatbread sub rolls
8 slices lean turkey breast
4 slices reduced-fat provolone cheese
6 slices center-cut bacon; cooked
3/4 cup egg substitute (Egg Beaters)
1/4 cup fat free half -and-half
4 tablespoons basil pesto spread
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Like I said earlier, these mini sandwiches are amazing! A must try! The Arnold Italian sandwich thins are the perfect "light" substitute for the foccocia bread. They are thin, therefore allowing you to really taste the inside of the sandwich; the good stuff. Not to mention, they are only 100 calories per roll; making them a definite smart choice.
The center cut bacon is going to deliver 40% less fat and 100% real bacon flavor. This substitute was a no-brainer. Now, the pesto is going to have some fat, being that it is made with olive oil. But as you well know, olive oil is a healthy fat and healthy fats are essential for a balanced diet.
These would make a wonderful lunch and as seen in my photos, they look great cut up into mini sandwiches for a healthy appetizer. These would be great for any gathering; from a football tailgate to a wedding shower.
So, what are you waiting for? Get cookin'!
