Ready In:




  • To prepare sauce, combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring well with a whisk. Cook until jelly melts.
  • To prepare sandwiches, combine egg substitute, milk, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle sandwiches with powdered sugar. Serve sandwiches with sauce.

  1. 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.
  2. Oh, this is SO GOOD! The sauce is amazingly tasty. I had a hot Dijon that has a bit of horseradish in it & it was the perfect compliment to the sweet jelly and tangy orange juice. I used regular eggs and 2% milk, but otherwise followed the recipe. I made DH's on white bread & should have photographed his, but didn't think of it before he'd dug in. :) So the photo is of this sandwich on a dark rye bread. Which was very tasty! I'm sure I've eaten jarlsberg cheese when I was a teen & ate a lot of meals with my DH's Norwegian grandparents, but don't remember it. I really enjoyed the flavor of it in this sandwich. Thanks for sharing, Jan! :) Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :D
