I’m hooked on Oroweat Sandwich Thins!

Oroweat Turkey Club

For anyone who’s trying to watch their calorie and carb intake, we finally have a great alternative for sandwiches! I’m so hooked on these Oroweat Sandwich Thins!

They come in three varieties, Multi-Grain, 100% Whole Wheat and Honey Wheat. The Multi-Grain variety is my favorite!

These are much thinner than an English Muffin yet aren’t dry at all, even when toasted. Myself, I prefer a thinner bread. I don’t want the bread to dominate my sandwich. I’ve been toasting the sandwich thins and they end up a little crunchy on the outside but still a little pillowy on the inside. For being as tasty as these are, the entire roll is only 100 calories, 5 grams of fiber and only one gram of fat!

Since I work from home, I eat lunch at home almost every day.  I’m a creature of habit, too, so I usually end up having the same thing for lunch every day and it’s usually a turkey sandwich of some kind.

The sandwich pictured here is the Turkey Club recipe from Oroweat. It’s a great sandwich choice at only 343 calories and 8 grams of fat.

Turkey Club

1 Oroweat Multi-Grains Sandwich Thins Roll
3 ozs. thinly sliced smoked turkey
1 slice cooked turkey bacon
1 slice reduced fat cheddar
1 slice reduced fat swiss
1 t. honey mustard
red onion, tomato, and leaf lettuce

In an effort to cut back on the calories just a little bit more, I eliminate the bacon and I substitute one wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss for the two slices of reduced fat cheese. I just spread half of the Laughing Cow wedge on each sandwich slice on top of the mustard. By making just a few changes, you can have a healthy, filling sandwich for less than 300 calories!

Multi Grain Sandwich Thins

For those of you that are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s nearby, you’ll have to try a Trader Joe’s roasted chicken patty on a toasted Multi-Grain Sandwich Thin. I just recently discovered these chicken patties and they are only 140 calories and 4 grams of fat.  For a quick and easy lunch, I just spread a little mustard on each toasted sandwich thin, add the chicken patty, some lettuce and tomato and you end up with another fantastic sandwich for less than 300 calories.

And for a breakfast sandwich, I scramble up some Egg Beaters, spray a couple of squirts of “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” on the toasted Sandwich Thins, add a slice of canadian bacon  and you’ve got a great breakfast sandwich for under 300 calories.

I sure hope these sell well because I would hate to see these disappear from the grocery store shelves as quickly as they appeared! If you give these a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    I don’t see the Oroweat thins in my grocery, but I am in love with the Arnold multi-grain thins. I’m back on Weight Watchers and have an egg muffin (thin, egg beater, slice Canadian bacon, slice WW cheese) almost every morning. I, too, favor a turkey sandwich of some kind, though I spread my thin with either hummus or 1/4 avocado. It’s time for a Trader Joe run; I need to find those chicken patties.

    Hi Noble Pig,
    I had a friend just tell me that she also buys hers at Costco. I’m going there soon and am going to pick some up there. I’m sure it’s a much better price. I’ll just have to freeze some since I’m the only one in my house that eats them.

    Hi Arlene,
    Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment.

    The Arnold sandwich thins are the same. They are a sister company of Oroweat and I guess it depends on what part of the country you live in whether or not the packaging says Arnolds or Oroweat!

    I also LOVE avocado on a turkey sandwich and the hummus is a great idea! I hope you find the chicken patties! :-)

    Thanks Grace,
    They may say Arnolds on the packaging where you are instead of Oroweat, but they are the same product.

    And, just so it’s not misrepresented, I clarified the photo credit. I have made this recipe, but can’t take credit for the photo. I should have stated that more clearly in my post!

    Thanks for stopping by and, as always, for taking the time to leave us a comment! :-)
