Turkey Sandwich #DontCallMeBasic

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you my all-time favorite sandwich.  I order this at least once a week from a local bagel shop.  It’s so simple that I don’t understand why I don’t make it at home.  So I thought, why not save some money and make a sandwich with the exact ingredients that I love.   Here is my beloved Turkey Sandwich.

Turkey Sandwich #DontCallMeBasic
This sandwich is low-calorie, full of protein, the right amount of flavor and is simply delicious! You really have no idea how much I love it! It’s made with Foster Farms All Natural Oven Roasted Turkey, lettuce, tomato and pepperchini’s that has been sandwiched between an Everything Bagel. Yum! Oh and just a little bit of mustard. I can’t forget the mustard.

The key thing to making this sandwich is coring out the bagel. I took my fingers and tore out the center. It saves about 75 calories off of the bagel. You don’t need all of that extra bread and it makes a nice pocket to fill with your ingredients.

Plus I used Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey in Oven Roasted flavor. The turkey is 35% lower in sodium and only 60 calories for 3 slices, contains no nitrates/nitrites, chemicals or preservatives. Raised without hormones or steroids, the turkey is also 98% fat free. It does taste like it was made fresh out of the oven. I’m pretty picky when it comes to turkey deli meat and I have to admit, I love Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey.
