Turkey BLT Sandwich, complete with leftover turkey breast, is a great way to use up those turkey leftovers from the holidays! 

 

 

Normally each Thanksgiving we have a turkey breast as our main course and each Christmas, we have a ham. Some years we switch some things up, however, we always seem to have left over ham and turkey.  Don’t get me wrong, it definitely makes for tasty leftovers.  The only problem is sometimes it’s hard to constantly come up with different ideas for the leftovers.

That’s why this simple yet savory Turkey BLT Sandwich will be a perfect way to use up those turkey breast leftovers!

This yummy Turkey BLT Sandwich consists of bacon, turkey, romaine lettuce, baby spinach, grape tomatoes and flatbread.

Here are some questions you may have about making a Turkey BLT Sandwich.

Turkey BLT Sandwich

HOW MANY CALORIES DOES A NORMAL BLT HAVE?

When you make a traditional BLT using slices of white bread plus add in 3 slices of bacon and 1 tbsp. of mayo, you are looking at approximately 364 calories.  With our recipe, we are forgoing the mayo and using Greek yogurt instead.  We are also substituting the flatbread in lieu of the white bread so your calories are less. Each pocket thin flatbread has 200 calories plus add in the 3 slices of bacon, you are at approximately 281 calories. 

COULD I USE A FLATBREAD WRAP OR A SPINACH WRAP IN LIEU OF THE FLATBREAD?

Absolutely!  The wraps would add a fun twist to the sandwich plus it would make it portable for lunch!

COULD YOU FOREGO REGULAR BACON AND USE TURKEY BACON INSTEAD?

Yes, you could definitely do that as well!
