“Healthified version of a club sandwich. Contains: light wheat bread, bacon, lettuce, Roma tomato, light mayo and extra-lean turkey. This version of a club sandwich has lots of protein for a more satisfying and healthier meal than the traditional club, which provides tons of fat and very little protein. From The Most Decadent Diet Ever cookbook by Devin Alexander, author of The Biggest Loser Cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices center-cut bacon, cut in half
  • 3 slices light wheat bread
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 1 romaine lettuce leaf
  • 4 slices roma tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 ounces thinly sliced extra-lean roasted turkey or 5 ounces extra-lean shaved deli turkey


  1. Place a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Just before the bacon is cooked, toast the bread slices until lightly toasted on both sides. Then place them side by side on a clean work surface. Spread 1-1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise on the first and third slices of bread. Place the lettuce and then the tomato on the first slice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top evenly with half of the turkey. Top that with the bare slice of bread. Add the remaining turkey, followed by the bacon. Place the remaining slice of bread atop the sandwich. Secure the sandwich layers together by piercing them through the top bread slice with 4 decorative toothpicks place in a diamond pattern so they go all the way through the sandwich. Use a serrated knife to cut the sandwich diagonally into 4 triangles (a toothpick should be securing each quarter). Serve immediately.
