Easy Peasy!

_MG_3070.jpgI love sandwiches, however, I often get tired of the same old meat, cheese, mayo, and mustard combination. As I was  reading the January/February 2011 issue of the Food Network Magazine, I saw this recipe. I have no creativity when comes to sandwich making, so when i saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. I love bacon, turkey and avocados.
_MG_3064.jpgMash up the avocados, add sour cream (or yogurt), and spread it on your bread.
_MG_3066.jpgTop one side with spinach, tomatoes, and turkey.
_MG_3069.jpgThen add a few onions. If you don't like onions, simply leave them out. It's personal preference. I, for one, love red onions, but my family hates all kinds of onions. Even though they dislike onions, I still put them on all the sandwiches. I'm mean like that...or I'm just not a short order cook.  :)
_MG_3070.jpgLastly, top your sandwich with the other slice of bread that has the avocado spread on it.  Not only is this super easy, it's quite tasty too. I felt all gourmet and cool when I made these. It was like I should have been eating it in a deli somewhere. :)

Turkey-Avocado Clubs


    1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    8 slices turkey bacon (I used regular bacon)
    1 Hass avocado, halved and pitted
    1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (I used sour cream)
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    8 slices whole-grain bread, lightly toasted
    8 small leaves romaine lettuce
    1 tomato, cut into 8 slices
    12 ounces sliced deli turkey breast
    1/2 small cucumber, sliced
Toss the onion with the vinegar and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes, then drain. Meanwhile, cook the turkey bacon as the label directs until crisp.

Mash the avocado with the yogurt in another small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Lay 4 slices of bread on a cutting board and spread with half of the avocado-yogurt mixture. Top with the lettuce and tomato and season with salt and pepper. Add a layer of turkey breast, bacon, cucumber and red onion. Spread the remaining avocado mixture on the remaining 4 bread slices and place spread-side down on top of the sandwiches. Cut each sandwich in half to serve.
