Turkey Club

The other day I was craving a turkey sandwich for lunch and decided to make a turkey club. I used Boar’s Head turkey thinly sliced, my favorite turkey from the grocery store deli. It hit the spot! For some twists on the classic, try my Bento Box Turkey Club Roll Ups and Chicken Club Lettuce Wrap Sandwich.

Turkey clubs are great with just some chips and a pickle, but you could also serve it with your favorite side. Here are some options: potato salad, egg salad, tomato salad, corn, tomato, and avocado salad, fruit salad, and tomato soup.

Crispy bacon is the best part of a club. Bacon makes everything better, amiright? One of the easiest ways to cook bacon is in the oven. Put the bacon on a foil- lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, flipping over after 10 minutes. Let bacon sit on paper towels for a few minutes to drain the grease.

What is a turkey club sandwich?

A turkey club is a classic sandwich with six ingredients: turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and bread. It traditionally has a third slice of bread in the middle with extra layers of meat, but I only used two slices to cut calories.

Are turkey clubs healthy?

Turkey clubs can be healthy. Since I only use two slices of bread, I also use less meat and mayo. I prefer using Dave’s Killer Bread Thin-Sliced, which is whole grain and has fewer calories than regular bread. This turkey club sandwich has 351 calories.

Variations:

  • Sub ham, roast beef, or chicken for the turkey.
  • Use multiple types of meat in one sandwich. Turkey and ham is a popular combo.
  • Use a tortilla instead of bread for a turkey club wrap.
  • Swap the bread for a lettuce wrap for a low-carb sandwich.
  • Add mustard to your sandwich.
  • Put cheddar or Swiss cheese on your club.
  • Add avocado for an extra veggie.

    Who doesn’t LOVE bacon? This sandwich is a guilt free way of eating the delicious combo of a TBLT that is filled with flavor and nutrients. For the Win!

  2. LOVE THIS! This has been my go-to lunch on weekdays lately! I’m not a big tomato fan so I sub in pickles, instead. Experimenting with different turkey flavors from the deli has been fun, too.

    This is too funny–I just saw this posted this morning, but yesterday I was hit with an intense club craving and made them too! (Clubs are in fact my favorite sandwiches, and I can get boars head at the deli a mile from my house which I LOVE. I can’t eat any other deli meat now.) I add an avocado and a smidge of cheese and OH BOY. Now I want another for lunch today! With mine I had chopped bacon made for meal prep so I just sprinkled some of that on it to get the taste of bacon for fewer points. Or in my case to make room for the avocado points!

  4. Gina after seeing the club sandwich pop up – the craving started ha! 
    Went to deli purchased turkey meat – had all other ingredients on hand. Called my son offered to share my turkey club sandwich fixins  – we both loved it fresh, light and satisfying ! 
    Thanks for the impromptu,  easy Sandwich suggestion for a start  of summer on a Saturday afternoon. 
    Not only am I a follower of Skinny taste but my son and his fiancé are too! Thanks for all you do. 

  5. We love to have these sandwiches! I use my home made multi grain bread (COVID induced extra time!).   We use natural turkey breast with no added nitrates, sodium, etc.  So I feel good about serving this to my family!! Thanks for all of your recipes and tips!! They have been a God send!  

  6. What about the high sodium of deli meat? I mean, I love salt, but I’m trying to cut back and the salt in deli meat is really overwhelming.

    1. That’s what the numbers inside of colored boxes at the top of the recipe card indicate. Depends on your WW plan.
