I’m not one to use my calories for the day on a sandwich, I’d rather save them for a juicy steak and potatoes for dinner, or Skinny Cow ice cream at the end of the day.
But every once in awhile the craving for a melted cheese sandwich hits, and I’m willing to use those precious calories and skip dessert.
When I discovered this whole grain flat bread at Albertsons, I knew it would make a terrific turkey melt. All I needed was Swiss cheese (the combination of Swiss and turkey can’t be beat), and a creamy dressing.
If you’re not a Swiss cheese fan, this recipe for Turkey Panini’s with Feta Cheese Sauce was definitely a hit.
Simply follow the same directions for the sandwich above, but replace the Ranch dressing with this feta cheese sauce.
- ⅓ cup low fat feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil based mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon oregano, dried
Either way, you’ll have a cheesy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, sandwich for lunch that is definitely worth the calories.
Happy, healthy cooking!
Serves 2 (each person gets 2 quarters)
Shake It Up! If you can't find whole grain flatbread, 100% whole wheat sandwich bread works just fine. No turkey? Leftover chicken would be terrific. Don't like Ranch dressing? Low fat mayonnaise and a spicy mustard be perfect.
- 2 ea Flat Bread, 8" round
- 2 tablespoons low fat Ranch dressing
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 3 slices low fat swiss cheese
- 3 slices deli turkey breast
- optional 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage or thyme

- Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium low heat.
- Spread Ranch dressing over one piece of flatbread.
- Layer spinach, turkey then Swiss cheese and top with the last piece of flatbread.
- Generously spray the skillet with cooking spray and add sandwich.
- Cook for 3 - 5 minutes until the first side is browned.
- Then flip and cook another 3 - 5 minutes until the second side is browned and the cheese is melted.
