This sandwich is perfect for breakfast or dinner. It tastes sweet, like French toast, but gets protein from the meat and cheese. —Monica Woods, Springfield, Missouri


  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices deli turkey
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple butter


  1. Spread mustard over one side of each bread slice; top two slices with cheese and turkey. Cover with remaining bread, mustard side down. In a shallow bowl, beat egg substitute and milk. Dip sandwiches in mixture, coating both sides.
  2. Heat a griddle coated with cooking spray; toast sandwiches until lightly browned on both sides. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve with apple butter.
