READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by CaliforniaJan

A great Cooking LIght version of a sandwich classic! Use the delicious low-fat version of Jarlesburg cheese, and pair with a mug of soup for a perfect cool weather supper.

Top Review by weekend cooker

Made for one very nice lunch. Due to the DS being allergic to orange juice, I used apple juice, which seemed not to affect the outcome one bit. Went real well with a bowl of soup. The sauce was real nice with this. A winner here ! Made for Holiday tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare sauce, combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring well with a whisk. Cook until jelly melts.
  2. To prepare sandwiches, combine egg substitute, milk, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  3. Place one slice each of the turkey, ham, and cheese on each of 4 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices. Dip both sides of each sandwich into the egg substitute mixture. Place sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 3 minutes on each side or until sandwiches are golden. Sandwiches can also be cooked in a pannini press.
  4. Sprinkle sandwiches with powdered sugar. Serve sandwiches with sauce.
