This recipe is of a sandwich I fondly remember from Big Boy, however I have lightened it up a bit. (4.5 WW points) Enjoy.

I thought this was a really tasty and low fat sandwich. I liked that the insides were a bit warm but it wasn't cooked like grilled cheese. The thousand island dressing reminded me a bit of a ruben in style. I would certainly make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices low-calorie bread (toasted)
  • 6 slices virginia ham (thin slice or shaved)
  • 1 slice low-fat swiss cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free thousand island salad dressing
  • 3 slices tomatoes
  • 14 cup lettuce


  1. Place ham in non-stick skillet on low just till sizzles a little, turn over.
  2. Once heated through turn off stove and put cheese on top so it can melt a little.
  3. Spread each piece of bread with 1/2 tablespoons of dressing.
  4. Build sandwich with ham, cheese, tomato and lettuce. Cut in half. Enjoy.
