Many of us over 35 and equally important we want to feed our children things they will find likeable but just have a difficult time trying eat healthy for obvious reasons but w/o feeling like we're ingesting horse-feed! I've managed to make big changes w/o sacrificing taste and although the steps here may look like they are time consuming,this lunch/snack is a snap, much healthier than one may think and its as tasty as any of the BIG fat laden gourmet sandwhiches in comparison. Hope you will try, enjoy and please give me some constructive criticizm/opinions so I know if you like as well. LOL,

How to Make Not your average club sandwich

Step-by-Step

  1. If you have chosen to opt for the lean turkey bacon, please cook slowly-not overly or underly cooked. Real low-sodium bacon-cook until crisp but again not well done-then trim off visible fat. Canadian bacon usually comes already cooked so all you need to do is fry lightly just to warm and brown a bit on both sides. Always drain cooked bacon products:a paper plate w/paper towels does fine to alleviate unwanted grease once removed from pan. Opted for the fully cooked bottle of hormel bacon bits-just set aside for a moment
  2. run a pearin knife or teaspoon along the inside to remove all of the green goodness.smash w/fork, add the mayo or sour cream,(you can even put a lil of both if you like) add powdered package of guacamole mix and stir thoroughly. Set aside
  3. Wash whatever type of tomatoe you prefer, trim stem or top and slice thinly-set aside.
    Take your choice of the arnolds brand sandwhich thins (the flax & Fiber is best for omegas and fiber benefits)however your choice will work equally as fine as well as flatbread if prefferred.
    Split the pre-cut sandwhich thins and put them on a platter or seperate plates for putting it all together.
  4. Slather each inner-side of the sandwhich thins, or one side of the flatbread with the avocado mixture, if you've opted for the tastful smoked provolone, put one slice on what will be the bottom of one side of each sandwhich.
    Add
  5. Now take out your thin sliced, honey smoked turkey and place it atop the cheese,(if you opted to use). If not-right on the already avocado prepared bottom side of the sandwhich.Repeat on all sandwhiches.
  6. top with 1 piece/thinly sliced tomato, then take a pinch of the broccoli sprouts and seperate a bit over the tomato. If you are using the bacon bits:sprinkle a pinch on what will be the top-side of the sandwhich already slathered w/avocado mixture-same applies to any of the other bacon options as they are soooo tasty and will stay in place better if directly atop the avocado mixture.
    Now gently place top of sandwhich thin atop your gourmet club. I cut mine in half and stick a toothpick in to keep in place and make it easier to eat:especialy for children who suprisingly seem to love this healthier rendition of the traditional club.I hope you will enjoy this not-so-average sandwhich.
